Law For Black Lives
#Law4BlackLives is a network of over 2000 radical lawyers, law students, and legal workers of color committed to building the power of the Black Lives Matter movement. Formed out of the uprisings in Ferguson & Baltimore, we use the law to embolden, defend and protect the growing movement for Black liberation. L4BL started as a 2-day convening organized by Center for Constitutional Rights along with a steering committee of visionary legal thinkers in August of 2015. The success of the convening made it clear that the time is now to build a legal arm for the movement for Black lives.
