Our History

After attending a national gathering of lawyers, law students, legal workers, and jailhouse lawyers who were committed to building a world where #BlackLivesMatter, we returned to the District committed to helping bridge the gap between the law and the community it should serve. 


Law4BlackLives seeks to eradicate white supremacy and anti-Blackness by leveraging our collective skills and experiences as lawyers, legal professionals, and Black people to support Black-led community efforts in the struggle for liberation and justice in metropolitan Washington, DC.
