The project is now a member-led global network of more than 40 chapters. Their members organize and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and Black Futures Lab & Black to the Future Action FundAbout Black Futures LabAs Principal of The Black Futures Lab, Alicia works to transform Black communities into constituencies that change the way power operates—locally, statewide and nationally. The problems facing the Black communities are complex—the solutions require experimentation, innovation, and political power.Quotes‘My greatest strength, I have thick skin and a soft heart” - Alicia Garza “Be courageous enough to be yourself at all times.” - Alicia Garza“People often say that [oppressed] communities are like crabs in a bucket, but no one mentions that the bucket is not the crabs' natural habitat.”- Alicia Garza“Thank you for being willing to be re-organized.” - Alicia Garza to Andy Grammer "This movement can't just be mine, it has to be yours.
