Black Lives Matter Minneapolis (BLM) works as a grassroots organizing core team of majority young, Black and queer individuals to confront police brutality and stop the unnecessary deaths and harassment of Black people, specifically in Minnesota. BLM does this in several ways; direct action, social media, political education, community building, and policy change. BLM intends to push policy demands a city and statewide levels that begin to undo the inherently racist systems that uphold police departments.
