Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has remained silent on a recent platform from Black Lives Matter that is aimed at “ending the war on black people.”

Black Lives Matter and affiliated groups released Monday a list of six demands and 40 recommendations to achieve them. The platform is aimed at the “collective liberation” of black people and calls for reparations, community control and and economic justice. (RELATED: Black Lives Matter Officially Demands Reparations For Slavery)

The list demands “reparations for past and continuing harms.” They call for a “guaranteed minimum livable income” as well as free access to higher education for black people.

Calls to the Clinton campaign from The Daily Caller News Foundation on Clinton’s position on reparations for slavery went unanswered.

A big feature of Clinton’s campaign centers around “racial justice.” As president, Clinton says that she will put a stop to gun violence in an effort to help black men.
