Our Work

Million Hoodies Movement for Justice is a human rights organization founded in the wake of the murder of Trayvon Martin to confront anti-black racism and systemic violence. By fostering the development of the next generation of human rights leaders, we run campaigns to push back against anti-black racism and mass criminalization, and educate our supporters on the critical issues facing our communities and the right to be safe.

Over the last couple years, Million Hoodies’ work has continued to expand in breadth and impact. Our accomplishments reflect this growth—from stopping the criminalization of Black youth from wearing hoodies in public spaces to developing a new mobile program to share compelling Black news and supporting a burgeoning network of new leaders in local communities and campuses across the country.
