On August 1st, 2016 the Movement for Black Lives, a coalition of more than 50 organizations, released it’s platform. Black Lives Matter Nashville stands in solidarity with the organizations involved and the demands that have been raised. As the platform states:
Black humanity and dignity requires black political will and power. In response to the sustained and increasingly visible violence against Black communities in the U.S. and globally, a collective of more than 50 organizations representing thousands of Black people from across the country have come together with renewed energy and purpose to articulate a common vision and agenda. We are a collective that centers and is rooted in Black communities, but we recognize we have a shared struggle with all oppressed people; collective liberation will be a product of all of our work.
