Driving the news: Patrisse Cullors, BLM co-founder and activist, spoke at the DNC’s virtual party platform meeting today with a searing message about the Democrats’ agenda, based on Rep. John Lewis’ original “March on Washington” speech.

“Without the sea changes our movement recommended for the 2020 Democratic platform, any claims to allyship and solidarity with our work to fight for Black liberation are for naught,” she said.

In a call after her remarks, Cullors told Axios she had proposed “about 10” amendments spanning criminal justice, reforms to the legal system, policing, education, the environment and reparations. All of her amendments were rejected without a vote.
