The Black Lives Matter Bay Area chapter covers all 9 counties of the San Francisco Bay Area, and work closely with our sister chapter in Sacramento. BLM Bay Area members organize and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes. We support Black-led organizations that amplify the power and voices of Black communities here at home; and we work in alliance with Black communities and other oppressed communities across the country. BLM Bay Area is led by a core team of founding members, and driven by working groups and committees. Every other month, BLM Bay Area hosts a general meeting in Oakland, Berkeley, or San Francisco. Our current priorities are to strengthen radical Black organizing and create opportunities for everyday Black folk to engage, build local political power, and support action and policy to end the mass incarceration of all Black people.
