Alicia Garza’s initial Facebook post responsible for sparking the Black Lives Matter movement
The Movement for Black Lives was created by Alicia Garza following concerns over the way that Black Lives Matter had become synonymous with the Ferguson riots. The Movement for Black Lives is the largest group inside the Black Lives Matter movement’s network. This group directs their activism based on Garza’s advocacy style which works outside of the existing power structure. They reject traditional tactics and avoid making connections and compromises with politicians.
Supermajority was established in the spring of 2019 and is focused on creating political power for American women. The organization Supermajority was created by Garza, Cecile Richards, and Ai-jen Poo. Supermajority intends to "train and mobilize two million women across America to become organizers, activists, and leaders ahead of the 2020 election" to create a "multiracial, intergenerational movement for women's equality." One of the main goals of Supermajority is to create "'a women's new deal,'" with women's issues like "voting rights, gun control, paid family leave, and equal pay" being seen as "issues that impact everyone" for the 2020 presidency, as well as build a greater platform for women in politics. In the 2020 election, cofounder Cecile Richards says "[the group will be successful] if 54% of voters in this country are women and if we are able to insert into this country the issues that women care about and elect a president who’s committed to doing something about them."
In 2018, Garza launched Black Futures Lab, whose goal is to engage with advocate organizations to advance local, state, and federal policies that make black communities stronger. Following the foundation, Garza created the Black Census Project in part with Black Futures Lab in order to assess the complexity of black communities across America in greater detail. Garza divided the Black Census Project into creating separate studies focusing on the black LGBTQ community as well as the black community’s political engagement in the United States.
In 2018 Alicia Garza launched Black Future Labs, directed to supporting the black community achieve more political power. The first project for Black Future Labs was the Black Census Project. This project was the largest survey on Black People since the Reconstruction of the United States. The survey included questions on subjects such as political attitudes, organization affiliation, experiences with racism and police violence, perceptions of social movements, access to healthcare and economic well being, etc. Black Future Labs plans to use the results of the Black Census Project to determine pressing legislative and policy issues.
In 2018 Alicia Garza was named in the inaugural cohort of The Atlantic Fellows for Racial Equity (AFRE). This first cohort of 29 Atlantic Fellows are focused on challenging racism in the U.S. and South Africa and disrupting the rise of white nationalism and supremacy.
In 2017, Alicia Garza was selected as a guest speaker to speak on behalf of graduating students from San Francisco State University in California. In her speech, Garza decided her speech towards graduating black women as well as praising the persistent black women who came before her, saying they are the reason why women like her can do the activist work of today:
In November 2017, Black Lives Matter founders Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi were awarded the Sydney Peace Prize.
Garza presented at the 2016 Bay Area Rising event, speaking about the propagation of Black Lives Matter and human rights.
Garza led the 2015 Freedom Ride to Ferguson, organized by Cullors and Darnell Moore that launched the building of BlackLivesMatter chapters across the United States and the world. However, Garza does not think of the Black Lives Matter Movement as ever being created. She feels her work is only a continuation of the resistance led by black people in America. The movement and Garza are credited for popularizing the use of social media for mass mobilization; a practice called “mediated mobilization”. This practice has been used by other movements such as the #MeToo movement.
Within the group, the power structure is different than most. They wanted to avoid the power structure they felt failed other black activist groups. The group puts those with the most marginalized identities in leadership positions. The group also created the Policy Table in 2015 in an attempt to translate their goals into a policy platform. This involved initiatives that give bail money to black mothers who could not afford it and a land-rights initiative.
In 2015, Garza was selected as the Member’s Choice for Community Grand Marshal at 2015 Pride celebration, as she was considered a local hero in Oakland for her contributions to the LGBTQ community and society at large. Over two dozen Black Lives Matter organizers and supporters marched in the Pride Parade behind Garza, who sat next to trans activist Miss Major, the previous year’s Community Grand Marshal.
Garza was recognized on the Root 100 list of African American Achievers between the ages of 25 and 45. She was also recognized on the Politico50 2015 guide to Thinkers, Doers, and Visionaries along with Cullors and Tometi.
In 2015, Garza, Cullors, and Tometi (as "The Women of #BlackLivesMatter") were among the nine runners-up for The Advocate's Person of the Year.
With Opal Tometi and Patrisse Cullors, Garza birthed the Black Lives Matter movement. Garza is credited with inspiring the slogan when, after the July 2013 acquittal of George Zimmerman of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, she posted on Facebook: "Black people. I love you. I love us. Our lives matter, Black Lives Matter" which Cullors then shared with the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter. She was also struck by the similarities of Trayvon Martin to her younger brother, feeling that it could have been him killed instead. The organization Black Lives Matter was spurred on by the killings of black people by police in recent media and racial disparities within the U.S. criminal legal system. Concerns were over violence from the police, mass incarceration, police militarization, and over-criminalization. In particular, the movement and Garza’s post became popularized after protests emerged in Ferguson, Missouri, where an unarmed black teenager was shot and killed by a white police officer.
