Law for Black Lives

Law for Black Lives
New York, NY United States

Law For Black Lives (L4BL) is a national network of radical lawyers, law students, and legal workers of color committed to building the power of the Black Lives Matter movement. Formed out of the uprisings in Ferguson & Baltimore, we use the law to embolden, defend and protect the growing movement for Black liberation. L4BL started in 2015, as a 2-day convening organized by Center for Constitutional Rights along with a steering committee of visionary legal thinkers. The success of the convening made it clear that the time is now to build a legal arm for the movement for Black lives.

ColorOfChange

ColorOfChange
Oakland, CA

Color Of Change is the nation’s largest online racial justice organization. We help people respond effectively to injustice in the world around us. As a national online force driven by more than 1.4 million members, we move decision-makers in corporations and government to create a more human and less hostile world for Black people in America. Our campaigns and initiatives win changes that matter. By designing strategies powerful enough to fight racism and injustice—in politics and culture, in the work place and the economy, in criminal justice and community life, and wherever they exist—we are changing both the written and unwritten rules of society. We mobilize our members to end practices and systems that unfairly hold Black people back, and champion solutions that move us all forward. Until justice is real.
