    Alicia Garza

    Co-Creator, Black Lives Matter; Special Projects Director, National Domestic Workers Alliance

    Alicia Garza is an organizer, writer and freedom dreamer living and working in Oakland, California. She is the Special Projects Director for the National Domestic Workers Alliance, the nation’s leading voice for dignity and fairness for the millions of domestic workers in the United States, most of whom are women. She is also the Co-Creator of Black Lives Matter, a national organizing project focused on combatting anti-black state sanctioned violence. Garza's work challenges everyone to celebrate the contributions of black queer women's work within popular narratives of black movements, and reminds us that the black radical tradition is long, complex and international.
