Let’s honor George Floyd together and save the Black Lives that Matter to him
Black Lives Matter to George Floyd. Before he was murdered, he made a video pleading with the younger generation to put down their guns. Stop killing each other, and come home to GOD!
That was his final message to the world and Wheelchairs Against Guns will continue his mission.
For 7 years, we have worked with inner-city youth to stop gun and gang violence. Show your support and help us continue to save the Black Lives that Matter to George Floyd.

About Black Lives Matter
Black Lives Matter is a movement that started on July 13, 2013. It was founded by Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi. The movement aims to end systemic racism, gun violence, and police brutality against African Americans. And although it started in the United States, BLM has quickly gained traction around the world.
At its core, Black Lives Matter opposes the systemic racism that has existed in the United States for centuries. Even though slavery has been abolished and Blacks now have the same rights as whites, racial abuses still exist, as evidenced by the number of unarmed Black men and women killed by White police officers.
As Black Lives Matter gained national attention, the founders conducted street demonstrations and were able to form a coast to coast network.
Celebrities such as Samuel L. Jackson, Justin Timberlake, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, the late Prince, Matt McGorry, Jesse Williams, Beyonce, Jay Z, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Bellamy Young, Bette Midler, Katy Perry, and Josh Groban, among many others, have joined the movement and pledged their support vocally and publicly.
Undoubtedly, the BLM movement has been effective in helping victims of gun violence and police brutality. For instance, the movement has raised visibility for non-profit organizations like Wheelchairs Against Guns, which is also committed to stemming the tide of gun violence and police brutality in the Black community.
Each week members of WAG conduct anti-violence workshops in inner-city schools to educate students on ways to avoid potentially dangerous situations in their neighborhood and confrontations with law enforcement.
The workshops are centered around teaching students 3 important life skills: conflict resolution, critical thinking, and how to build and maintain positive self-esteem.
