Black Lives Matter


Black Lives Matter began in 2013 following the death of Trayvon Martin. Starting first as a hashtag on social media, the movement grew as more Black people were killed by police officers around the country. In 2020, the deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyed have sparked constant Black Lives Matter protests across the nation.
