Blacks Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors is tied to a non-profit that failed to disclose hundreds of thousands in donations. in the disclosure form that is sent in to the IRS, the non-profit claimed to have taken in less than $50,000. That number is significant because if you take in 50k or more, you must detail the money you took in and documented where the money went.
This is not the first money issue Cullors has had. Local chapters of BLM have wanted to know why the national organization took in $90 million but they did not share in the largesse and also the fact that she was able to buy millions of dollars worth of property. That is not to say she necessarily wrong but we are just documenting scandals.
A large chunk of the 90 million went for travel and salaries for the staffers including Cullors.
Dignity and Power Now is a self-described “Los Angeles-based grassroots organization founded in 2012. They allegedly fight for the dignity and power of all incarcerated people. the group is run by Patrisse Cullors.
The NY Post reported that the non-profit took in at least $225,000 in 2016, the year they claimed less than 50k. That leaves at least 175 unaccounted for. That would make a nice down payment on a house.
The social justice nonprofit was given $100,000 by the Los Angeles-based Resnick Foundation and another $125,000 from the California Initiative in 2016. That money was not reported to the state of California either.
“The obvious question is what happened to the money,” NLPC chairman Peter Flaherty said. “Given these circumstances, we believe that an audit is in order.”
Dignity and Power Now purports to speak in the name of the disadvantaged. The IRS must ensure that no one is taking advantage.”

This is the latest controversy surrounding Khan-Cullors.
Last week, Michael Brown’s father joined BLM chapters who are demanding more “financial transparency” of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation. The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation raked in more than $90 million in 2020, according to the Associated Press.
