Much is at stake in this climate of racial injustice and under the Trump administration. The Black Lives Matter movement gained momentum following the murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis earlier this year. Alicia Garza, the co-founder of Black Lives Matter, has stated that she is a potential target for white supremacist groups.

The ardent Garza took to social media on her Twitter account to reveal that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) contacted her late last week when they arrested an Idaho man who may be in with several white supremacist groups Connection.

The FBI visited my house today. They arrested a man in Idaho on charges of guns that they believe belong to white supremacist groups. They found my name among others on a list in his house.

As usual, the President spent a lot of time dealing with lies and disinformation about BLM and a whole host of other things in last night's debate. Fortunately, I address it in my book #ThePurposeOfPower too. https://t.co/ro5zgCuRKB

More of this needs to be told. Again, your President and his people are putting our lives at risk. In the meantime, they cannot hold those who actually commit terrorist acts accountable. https://t.co/8wSD7Okic8

Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometti founded Black Lives Matter in 2013.

According to the Black Lives Matter website, “#BlackLivesMatter was created in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin's killer. The Global Network Foundation, Inc. is a global organization in the US, UK and Canada whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in state and vigilante violence inflicting black communities. By fighting and combating acts of violence, making space for black imagination and innovation, and centering black joy, we gain immediate improvements in our lives. "
