Alicia Garza


Alicia Garza is an Oakland-based organizer, writer, public speaker and freedom dreamer who is currently 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. Garza, along with Opal Tometi and Patrisse Cullors, also co-founded the Black Lives Matter network, a globally-recognized organizing project that focuses on combatting anti-Black state-sanctioned violence and the oppression of all Black people. Since the rise of the BLM movement, Garza has become a powerful voice in the media. Her articles and interviews have been featured in Time, Mic, The Guardian, Elle.com, Essence, Democracy Now! and The New York Times. She is a contributor to the anthology of essays titled "Radical Hope: Letters of Love and Dissent in Dangerous Times."
