Patrisse Cullors is a trained Marxist community organizer and co-founder of the DNC fundraising arm, the Black Lives Matter organization.[1][2]

Cullors is an advocate for prison abolition and Marxist revolution.[3][4] She also identifies, in her words, as a "queer" activist.[5] Cullors describes herself as a “working class, queer, black woman.” She claims the country killed her father, a drug addict. At a 2015 Netroots Nation conference, Cullors led chants shouting,

“If I die in police custody, burn everything down … rise the f*** up! That is the only way m*****f**ers like you will listen!”[6]

Cullors founded and directs Dignity and Power Now, which claims to seek “dignity and power of incarcerated people, their families, and communities.”

Cullors was trained by Eric Mann, a former Weather Underground leader who exhorts followers to become “anti-racist, anti-imperialist” activists.[7] Mann runs another Liberation Road front, the Labor/Community Strategy Center. Like many professional leftists, he makes good money—over $225,000—living in “the system” he advocates destroying.
