Black Lives Matter  is a decentralized political and social movement that seeks to highlight racism, discrimination, and inequality experienced by black people

When its supporters come together, they do so primarily to protest incidents of police brutality and racially motivated violence against black people

The movement and its related organizations typically advocate for various policy changes considered to be related to black liberation

While there are specific organizations that label themselves simply as "Black Lives Matter," such as the Black Lives Matter Global Network, the overall movement is a decentralized network of people and organizations with no formal hierarchy
