Black Lives Matter (BLM) is a decentralized political and social movement advocating for non-violent civil disobedience in protest against incidents of police brutality and all racially motivated violence

The movement against police mistreatment of African Americans is broadening far beyond its core support in the Black community, with potentially landmark consequences for the movement and for the younger generations who have fueled this spring's protests .

Jason Lazarus, Siebren Versteeg and Stephanie Syjuco founded Public Public Address on September 1 to help people with illnesses and disabilities participate in these protests and make their voices heard without putting their lives at risk.

"This is all about our solidarity with Black Lives Matter. We want people to be a part of the movement whether they can protest on the streets or not," Lazarus told CNN. "Our goal is battling systemic racism and violence and bringing all kinds of people along with us."

Public Public Address urges people who are unable to protest in person to submit videos or photos of themselves protesting anywhere in the world. Submissions have been shot in people's homes, backyards and even beds.

The site edits the submissions and weaves them together, creating one large virtual protest. It's broadcast online every day and all day with no end date in sight.

Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white We also believe that in order to win and bring as many people with us along the way, we must move beyond the narrow nationalism that is all too prevalent in Black communities.

Until black people are free, no one is fully free. Because the issues that affect black people the most, affect everyone. Can you imagine an America where oppression and fear are dissolved, Where we are whole and healed? It’s time to center what matters and fight for the change we need.

The project has attracted more than 100 participants since its launch, according to Lazarus, an assistant professor of art and art history at the University of South Florida in Tampa.

Lucie Duggan, a disabled and immunocompromised 16-year-old girl from Orlando, Florida, is one of the participants. She said she joined Public Public Address to take a stand against injustice.

"It is so important that everyone works as hard as they can to provide justice and equality. It's made an impact in my life by allowing me to further a cause that is so important and dire," Duggan told CNN.

"Even though we can't provide our bodies to the cause, we are with the protestors in spirit. Hopefully this project encourages many able bodied people to take to the streets and demand change."

Unable to walk without a cane or wheelchair, Duggan added that protesting was never an option for her until Public Public Address was launched.

"While we initially started this for Black Lives Matter, the core message of the project is that we want to give all people a platform to protest," Versteeg told CNN.

"With the upcoming election ... we think this will soon go far beyond Black Lives Matter and into something much bigger."

He says he fears he will be shot by an officer over his skin color and doesn’t want to sign his “own death certificate.” He questioned the police’s ability to protect him. Saturday at my football game I’ll tell the police officer on duty to “protect” me he can just take the day off. Fr. I’d rather not have the officer shoot me because he feared for his life because of my black skin or other dumb ish.
