Movement for Black Lives Policy Platform

 

movement-black-lives-image-8-1-16The Black Lives Matter Movement has spurred conversation about the treatment of black bodies in the United States and across the world. For the first couple of years, critics often attempted to dismiss the movement by claiming that it had no leadership or clear goals. Recently, the movement released a highly anticipated policy platform. We speak to Devonte Jackson and Marbre Shalybuts about national and local implications. Then, we take listener calls on next steps in the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Guests:

Devonte Jackson, Black Alliance for Just Immigration, BLM-Bay Area

Marbre Shalybuts, Movement for Black Lives, Policy Platform Leadership Team
