Our Long Beach Team, Since 2014
#BlackLivesMatter LBC is a local organizing effort in Long Beach, CA that moves in solidarity with the national United States-based #BlackLivesMatter organization (see Herstory and Love Note). Our chapter was founded in 2014.
We are a Black-led organization that:
- Seeks Black liberation, and accordingly liberation for all people.
- Is queer, women, and working-class affirming.
- Organizes around demands for predominately local issues.
- Collaborates on regional, national, and international organizing efforts with #BlackLivesMatter.
We are committed to supporting, growing, and developing leadership from the Black community in Long Beach on an on-going basis.
