Invest And Divest: The Movement for Black Lives Is On the Front Lines For Black Liberation

M4BL Is Hard at Work

Even with a new administration in office, the Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) isn’t taking its foot off the gas in its efforts to defend Black lives. A national network of organizations and individuals creating a broad political home for Black people, M4BL is active in communities across the nation with initiatives to learn, organize and take action.

Always looking to the future, the movement is currently focused on investing in policies and institutions that directly benefit and impact Black communities. Its goal is clearly defined: “We demand investments in the education, health and safety of Black people, instead of investments in the criminalizing, caging and harming of Black people.”Since the Biden-Harris administration earned 87 percent of the Black vote in the 2020 election, M4BL is holding legislators accountable to the demands and needs of the people who put them in office. The organization is also leading a charge to divest from ineffective, racist institutions like policing and incarceration in order to invest in people and communities.
