Along with Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi, Garza co-founded Black Lives Matter and coined the civil-rights movement’s name. The two friends host the Sunstorm podcast, “in which they get real about what’s happening in the world, what we can do about it, and how we can take care of ourselves as we do it.”
