A group is involved in the effort to change Columbus Day to "Indigenous Peoples' Day" in Los Angeles City and County
A number testified before city and county governmental bodies, listing ways Columbus impacted both indigenous and black peoples -- receiving supportive solidarity statements from the African American community.
Police: We'll be the judge of that on the street.
Last Friday, Black Lives Matter also hosted a fundraiser to benefit Standing Rock -- where they raised $2,500 that is earmarked for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, which is using funds to pay legal fees as well as supporting the protest camp's infrastructure.

This weekend, there were three officer-involved shootings of black men in Southern California, and Black Lives Matter conducted a non-violent action at LAPD Headquarters today (Oct. 3, 2016). 

Police arrested two of the women who showed up as supporters of indigenous issues -- Patrisse Cullours and Melina Abdullah. 

We are calling LAPD Headquarters at the numbers above to demand they be released because #Black Lives Matter on Indigenous Land.
