We endorse the Movement for Black Lives’ Policy Platform

The Fund for Democratic Communities is excited to endorse “A Vision for Black Lives: Policy Demands for Black Power, Freedom and Justice”.

As a thoughtful response to the violence against Black communities in the U.S. and globally, it is a work in progress that has already achieved a level of profundity beyond the more piecemeal lists of demands of the past.

It is a product of a collective process involving over 50 organizations representing several thousand of Black people nationally. It is transformational, recognizing the systems that are the root of the problem. It is clearly international in scope, anti-capitalist in orientation and deeply rooted in marginalized Black communities.

We applaud the energy and clarity of those involved in collaboratively articulating this vision.
