The B LM C Party is proud to endorse the following candidates for federal, state, and local office in 2020. The BLM Party endorsement is like a progressive seal of approval: it means these candidates can be counted on to fight for us on the issues that matter most, from fair funding of public schools and living wage jobs to ending mass incarceration and getting big money out of politics.


Below is our current list of 2020 endorsed candidates nationwide — check back often as more are added. (If you’re looking for our list of 2019 endorsed candidates, you can find it here.)
