It’s been a successful – if not controversial – summer for the Black Lives Matter movement, having garnered media attention through collisions with campaigning candidates all across the country. Not sparing either party, or any candidate, BLM has forced a much-needed conversation about racial injustice into stump speeches and routine media interview questions. Seriously, take a look at what all the candidates have said on community policing and civil rights. While campaign season can either help or hurt consensus building around ideas, the movement got a major boost last week off of the campaign trail when progressive poster-child Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) made a noteworthy speech giving an unqualified endorsement of the BLM’s policy platform, #CampaignZero. Sen. Warren tied together voting rights, community policing, and economic policy with the larger accusation of institutionalized, structural racism that BLM has made its mission to address. It was an important speech, especially coming from national figure of Sen. Warren's stature and influence on the national stage.
