BLM Birmingham

Since 2015, Black Lives Matter Birmingham Chapter has existed in a thriving city with a legacy of civil rights and social justice. Using a grassroots model, we seek to protect, and empower ALL BLACK LIVES in the Birmingham area, and partner with grassroots movements across Alabama for systemic state-wide change. We will accurately address the social, political, and economic concerns of the black community in a transformative way, and create a legacy of black unity, progression, and power. Issues focusing on collective ways of preventing gentrification, addressing police misconduct/criminal justice reform, ending systemic poverty/economic development, political transformation, healing justice, and building inclusive/intersectional movements are issues at the forefront of our work.
