This message is in response to some questions regarding the recent reorganization of BLM B-town. Please see our recent press release for more complete details: https://blm.btown-in.org/blm-b-town-blog
In general, we are rebooting this organization in order to bring it closer to the Guiding Principles outlined by the National BLM organization. Those principles can be found on our website here: https://blm.btown-in.org/about.html
In this process, we removed Vauhxx Booker not only from his role on the BLM Core Council but from our general membership for violating our internal agreements. As stated in our recent press release Mr. Booker has organized meetings on behalf of #BLM B-town to garner support from local organizations, politicians, and prominent public figures against the express wishes of the former and current core council. As a reminder, #BLM B-town does not endorse candidates for office. #BLM B-town wishes to remain a politically independent organization and looks forward to continuing to bring voters accurate, non-partisan information about local politics. Thus his actions and his bid for Bloomington City Council are at odds with the organization’s mission and goals.
Additionally, in response to emergent security concerns, we have shut down our Facebook Group page. We will continue to share information with the public through our Facebook main page and our own website.
All of our current efforts are to ensure the continued growth of BLM in Bloomington and to support the wider black and diverse communities in our city.
