Black Lives Matter leaders doled out lucrative contracts to family and friends, new documents reveal

New documents reveal that leaders of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation doled out lucrative contracts to family and friends.

The Black Lives Matter organization received $80 million following the George Floyd riots in 2020. But that figure plummeted to less than $29 million by the end of fiscal year 2023. Tax Forms reveal.

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors resigned from the organization in 2021. However, Cullors’ friends and family received large contracts from the charity. Mission “We will eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in the face of state and vigilante violence inflicted on Black communities.”

Paul Cullors, the brother of BLM co-founder, received $200,000 as head of security for Black Lives Matter in 2023. His company, Black Ties LLC, made another $1.6 million for providing professional security services to Black Lives Matter.

of Washington Free Beacon Paul Cullors and his company reported that since 2021, they have accumulated more than $4.2 million in Black Lives Matter conservation efforts.

Since 2020, Black Lives Matter Requested “Cut the National Police Budget.” Last July, BLM Celebrated “Police Budget Cut Week”

“This week we are proving that making our demands to defund the police a politically popular, achievable, mainstream demand is one of the main pillars of our short decade of progress as a modern civil rights movement,” Shalomiyah Bowers, a BLMGNF board member and fellow Patrisse Cullors activist, said last year.

Black Lives Matter paid Bowers’ consulting firm $2.6 million for staffing and management services in fiscal year 2023, according to tax filings.

BLM also provided funding to Damon Turner, the father of the Cullors’ only son. The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation awarded Turner’s art company, Trap Heals, $778,000 for work on a concert series in early 2022. Turner reportedly no longer works for the charity.

As previously reported by The Blaze News, BLM paid Turner’s company $969,459 for “live production, design and media,” according to the group’s fiscal 2021 report.

The group’s 2023 tax return shows a total of $1.1 million was paid to New Impact Partners, a consulting firm owned by Raymond Howard, the former director of operations for Black Lives Matter, and Raymond Howard’s sister, Danielle Edwards.

The Blaze News also previously reported that Patrisse Cullors “secretly purchased a $6 million home” in Southern California in October 2020 using funds donated to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.

In July 2021, it was reported that BLM had provided funding to purchase a Canadian mansion that was the former headquarters of the Communist Party of Canada for $6.3 million.

Laurie Styron, executive director of Charity Watch, said: Daily Caller Black Lives Matter has ‘no independent oversight body’

“Anyone who loves or hates this charity’s mission should be outraged that so much charitable money is being flowed to interested parties without sufficient oversight,” Styron said. “Charities are required to avoid both real and perceived conflicts of interest to maintain the public trust. This charity has done the opposite. The impression here is truly terrible.”
