This is a historical movement in the US that was at its height in the 1950s and 1960s. It focused on ending segregation and discrimination against Africans Americans and other people of color.

This one was actually good

One of the only good ones.

The Occupy Movement

This movement focuses on reversing economic inequality by challenging corporate power and improving democracy. Supporters of this movement typically oppose major cuts to government social programs.

It originally started as Occupy Wall Street, then spread around the world. Its slogan is "we are the 99%," and it has been said to inspire people to support Bernie Sanders for president. - Y2K

I agree with their goal but some of the members in the group aren't all that good. - DarkBoi-X

Women's Liberation Movement

This was the "second wave" of feminism in the 2nd half of the 20th century. It fought against sexism and male domination in societies around the world. - Y2K

Medicare for All

I'm into universal healthcare, but it questions me that we don't have it yet.

Medicare for all is both a policy and a movement in support of transforming the US healthcare system to something like Canada's healthcare system, in which the US government funds healthcare costs for everyone using tax revenues.

I definitely agree with them.Many people are dying because they can't afford medicare.

Animal Rights Movement

The animal rights movement fights for animals and against animal abuse, particularly in factory farming, which kills billions of animals every year. - Y2K

So they’re basically PETA? That explains a lot - Randomator

Fight for $15

This is a movement in support of increasing the minimum wage to $15 an hour, and they have succeeded in cities across the US. - Y2K

Honestly this could be kinda bad because if minimum wage increases then people won't be willing to work as hard because they will be earning more money anyway. - Randomator

Youth Rights Movement

While this movement is quite small, it is focused on liberating young people who are restricted by age of majority laws, and prevented from exercising autonomy and participating in society. This movement was given a small boost by the youth-led gun safety movement March for Our Lives. - Y2K

Black Lives Matter

Most Americans who support BLM are looking towards concerns with police brutality among the Black community, and that is an important issue.

This culturally impactful movement protests police brutality and racism against black people. Typically they organize demonstrations when racist cops are let off the hook after killing black people.

Cops can't help it if 50% of Us violent crimes are done by blacks, despite being 13% of the US

Some people in this group are racists but most people in BLM just want to end police brutality.

Our Revolution

This is a group started by Bernie Sanders that supports progressive candidates for political office. - Y2K

Greenpeace

The Contenders

Antifa

People everywhere are fighting to get rid of ICE, yet completely ignore Antifa, who literally support mugging and jumping people who aren't commies. - Zenaan

Even DarkBoi the Trump Hater hates it, once again, NO! - Maddox121

The Labor Movement

The labor movement took off in the 19th century, in reaction to the terrible working conditions after the industrial revolution. Workers around the world (including the US) fought for strong unions, shorter work days, a living wage, ending child labor, and safe, well-regulated working conditions. - Y2K

Democratic Socialists of America

What has our country come to? - PackFan2005

Get this higher. - DarkBoi-X

Fair Trade Movement

This movement believes in improving social, economic, and environmental conditions as a precondition for international trade, and in improving the economic power of exploited workers and marginalized developing countries. - Y2K

AFL-CIO
Socialist International
