Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence and systemic racism towards black people. BLM regularly holds protests speaking out against police killings of black people, and broader issues such as racial profiling, police brutality, and racial inequality in the United States criminal justice system.

It’s finally here! For almost the last year me and the squad at the @blackfutureslab have been cooking up some projects that we think will help build independent, progressive Black political power. Our first project? The #BlackCensus. We are talking to 200k black people about our experiences, hopes and dreams, so that no more decisions about us are made without us. Will you join us? #MyCensusIsBlack #MyFutureIsBlack
