BLM’s What Matters in 2020?

What Issues Matter to You? Banner

Black Lives Matter and our partners will impact the 2020 election cycle by leading a series of activities to engage, educate, and mobilize our communities to hold candidates accountable to the issues that systematically and disproportionately impact Black people.

We will engage and empower all Black folks, our allies, and under-served communities to use our voices and our votes to achieve the outcome we want in 2020.

We will inspire people across the United States to ask themselves and their candidates, “What Matters in 2020?”
