White People 4 Black Lives (@WP4BL) is a a white anti-racist collective that is the Los Angeles affiliate within a network of white anti-racists called SURJ, or Showing Up for Racial Justice.
Our work is rooted in showing up for racial justice and acting in alliance with Black Lives Matter: Los Angeles and other partners.
Why organize white people? WP4BL believes that white folks can play a progressive and supportive role in amplifying the voices and demands of Black people, moving the white community to take a more active and participatory stance for racial justice, and apply strategic pressure on institutions to change racist policies.
