Author and organizer from the United States. She is the Director of Black Futures Lab and co-founder (with Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi) of the Black Lives Matter Global Network, which has become one of the most influential social justice movements.
Central to Garza’s activism is the belief that Black communities, like all communities, deserve to be powerful in every aspect of their lives. Speaking from more than two decades of organizing experience, in a recent interview with Forbes, Garza advice for forming and leading transformative movements is, “Figure out what you really care about. Find other people who care about the same things that you do. Join them. And once you do, keep bringing other people along with you.”
