Growing future leaders
The Black Lives Matter 5280 Freedom School is where Black people are loved, valued, safe, and free to be themselves, and students become leaders for social change.
Freedom Schools were developed and led by Black Americans in the South as an alternative to traditional separate but unequal schools and encouraged Black youth to become change agents within their communities during the Civil Rights Movement.
Black Lives Matter 5280 is a fiscally sponsored 501c3 of the Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center
