BLM Lansing

Black Lives Matter Lansing is a small chapter—but what we lack in size, we make up for in influence. Over the past two years, we have successfully centered the issues of Black folks in Metro Lansing in the hearts and minds of neighbors, elected officials, and institutional leaders. BLM Lansing has oriented over 900 people to the BLM framework not just in Lansing, but also across the state through our workshops at the National Association of Social Work Michigan Legislative Education and Advocacy Day. BLM Lansing is in the midst of co-launching a political education campaign, Election 20XX, to inspire leadership in young Black people under age 30 “from the Block Club to the White House.”
