The Black Lives Matter Minneapolis chapter is one of the 26 nationally affiliated and recognized chapters working in coordinated and strategic ways to end the extrajudicial killing of unarmed Black people and children, and toward healing in the Black community. The group of individuals working under the name Black Lives Matter St. Paul is currently not an affiliated group. They are an independent group of racial justice activists operating out of St. Paul. The movement of people affirming that Black lives matter is a decentralized and growing movement. As a growing movement, many people and groups have raised their voices and choose different methods and strategies to work toward the change they want to see in the world. The diversity of Black voices and experiences in American culture are necessary and important. We support the dynamic diversity of Black voices and developing Black leadership in the fight to make Black lives matter.
