One of the leading women who started The Black Lives Matter organization is saying goodbye.

Co-founder and executive director, Patrisse Cullors recently stepped down down from her role to offer a new generation of leadership while focusing on her own television and book deal.

In an official statement, Cullors said, “With smart, experienced and committed people supporting the organization during this transition, I know that BLMGNF is in good hands.” She added, “The foundation’s agenda remains the same–eradicate white supremacy and build life-affirming institutions.”

Cullors’ last day with the organization was Friday, May 29th, 2021.

Cullors also shared with The Associated Press that she will focus on her second book and multi-year television development deal with Warner Bros.

In her seven years with the organization, Cullors formed the political action comittee which helped the organization donate nearly $25 million to Black-led groups.

In addition, she led the movement advocating for federal legislation to defund the police department.
