BLM

An abbreviation for "Black Lives Matter," a social justice movement focusing on black oppression and police brutality in the US and abroad. Its start is typically associated with the 2013 acquittal of George Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin, a black teenager who was unarmed at the time of the shooting. A BLM demonstration is being held outside city hall today.
