The Black Lives Matter network is a chapter-based national organization working for the validity of Black life. We are working to (re)build the Black liberation movement. We are intentional about how we as a network choose to strategize and organize for Black liberation, which means intentionally centering our Queer family and Black women leadership. Currently, there are 38 chapters within the official BLM Network. BLM Philly is the only official Black Lives Matter network chapter in Pennsylvania.
