Founders Say: This Is Not a Moment, but a Movement

From the

by Black Lives Matter

#BlackLivesMatter was created in 2012 after Trayvon Martin’s murderer, George Zimmerman, was acquitted for his crime, and dead 17-year-old Trayvon was post-humously placed on trial for his own murder. Rooted in the experiences of Black people in this country who actively resist our dehumanization, #BlackLivesMatter is a call to action and a response to the virulent anti-Black racism that permeates our society. Black Lives Matter is a unique contribution that goes beyond extrajudicial killings of Black people by police and vigilantes.

From the

compiled by the PNL Editorial Committee

In 2001 I was a senior in high school. In 2003 two college friends were in the National Guard, ready to go to war. I read about Abu Ghraib. I argued about war and about GW Bush, but I was apathetic. I had a developing political consciousness, but there was no possibility. I didn’t know of any contemporary social movements. I didn’t know they were necessary or could be successful.
