The Black Lives Matter Movement: A Discussion Group Series @ Centro Cultural de México, 313 N. Birch St. Santa Ana

Topic: What Do "They" Want? Approaching The Policy Demands of BLM Contrary to what mainstream media would have us believe, black lives matter has always been a movement organized around specific sets of demands. Though it is true that these demands have been varied and shifting, the fact remains that BLM has always had concrete demands (whether it be the early demand that Police Officer Darren Wilson be indicted for the killing of teenager Michael Brown or the more recent demand that police departments across the nation be defunded and demilitarized).

We will focus on the history of the movement's shifting demands. In an attempt to respond to the often-asked question "What do they want?" - we will closely examine the 2016 platform statement of the Movement for Black Lives. Finally, we will also seek to put pressure on the assumption that policy/legislative reform is the most valuable way to measure the "success" of a social justice movement.
