Black Lives Matter Founder, Alicia Garza, to Address NLG Convention

Mikayla Avalos-Feehan
Law for the People Intern

Alicia Garza will deliver the keynote address at the upcoming #Law4thePeople Convention, October 21st through the 25th in Oakland. Garza is most well known for co-founding #BlackLivesMatter in 2013. That movement was a response to the murder of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman, and the latter’s subsequent acquittal. The movement however, is more than just a hash tag and is conscious of the multiple oppressions at work in society. As Garza stated in her October 2014 article for The Feminist Wire, “Black Lives Matter affirms the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, Black-undocumented folks, folks with records, women and all Black lives along the gender spectrum. It centers those that have been marginalized within Black liberation movements.”
