The original ten Black Lives Matter chapters are demanding more transparency from other members. This comes after Patrisse Cullors, the co-founder of BLM, recently faced scrutiny over her personal finances.

A statement released by the BLM 10 Plus on Friday read, “the number of chapters that have aligned in support of our statement has nearly doubled. Some of these chapters have made their own statements echoing not only our call to accountability but also our experiences as we sought transparency, democracy and internal transformation for years.”

Cullors drew attention when reports showed she bought four homes for over $3 million despite calling herself a trained Marxist. Cullors has since stepped down from her position though she denied it had anything to do with the controversy.

In light of her controversy, BLM has continued to call for more accountability within their movement to prevent issues like this from unfolding in the future.
