Garza, along with Opal Tometi and Patrisse Cullors, 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,, 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."
