grade I Support The #BlackLivesMatter Platform for Reform!

Posted on March 29, 2018

A collective of more than 50 organizations representing thousands of Black people from across the country have come together to articulate a common vision and agenda.  

Time for a change.  Enough is enough.  We rally behind this clearly articulated platform.

End War on Black People

We demand an end to the named and unnamed wars on Black people - including the criminalization, incarceration, and killing of our people.

Reparations
We demand reparations for harms inflicted on Black people: from colonialism to slavery through food & housing redlining, mass incarceration, & surveillance.

Invest-divest
We demand investments in the education, health, and safety of Black people, instead of investments in the criminalizing, caging, and harming of Black people.

Economic Justice
We demand economic justice for all and a reconstruction of the economy to ensure Black communities have collective ownership, not merely access.

Community Control
We demand a world where those most impacted in our communities control the laws, institutions, and policies that are meant to serve us.

Political Power
We demand full and independent Black political power and Black self-determination in all areas of society.

We mix fresh silly levity and important social stances. A blend of serious, satire or outright fantasy: You decide. The heart in nonliteral packaging.
