Justice For Black Lives started off with four founding leaders who wanted to put together a silent sit-in protest that ending up hosting thousands of people. Alyssa Or ‘Aly’ Bates (founder & president) never thought that JFBL would be where it is today. Now we have 6 different divisions, leaders, volunteers, directors and a couple different chapters in other cities. JFBL emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. We are an organization driven by ideas, a strong foundation of support and focused on making legislative and community based changes for people of color.
