Following the murder of George Floyd, Minneapolis became the epicenter of a worldwide movement against police brutality, and for Black lives. There was an explosion of activism in the Twin Cities with almost daily political actions, speeches and marches as the community rose up for justice.

A diverse group of seven photographers, who had been documenting social justice movements in the Twin Cities since the killing of Jamar Clark almost five years prior, came together to help each other provide photo and livestream coverage as the movement grew. Their collective, Move for Justice News, documented hundreds of hours of live footage and thousands of photos of the historic movement. The Move for Justice News photographers worked to obtain unparalleled, intimate images of demonstrators, organizers and activists.

The resulting photographs of the arc of the 2020 social justice movement in the Twin Cities are a powerful testament to a historic moment.

M4JN photographers: Louie Tran, KingDemetrius Pendleton, Brad Sigal, Chris Juhn, Emma Sron, Phil Ward, Thaiphy Phan-Quang.
