Black Lives Matter is putting the forthcoming Biden-Harris administration on notice for failing to respond to a meeting request from the group.

The activists say they were also excluded from a Tuesday meeting between the president- and vice president-elect, Louisiana Rep. Cedric Richmond and several civil rights groups.

“On the night of the Biden Harris victory, BLM sent a letter requesting a meeting,” the movement wrote Wednesday on its Instagram.

The post includes a graphic stating “It has been … 32 days since we’ve requested a meeting with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. We’ve heard no response.”

“Black life cannot wait,” the group said. “Creating thriving conditions for Black communities in the 21st century cannot be put on pause.”

The post continued, “As the organization leading the largest global social justice movement, we demand a seat at the table. To ignore us—and the 64,000 of you who have signed our petition—is to ignore our generation’s most pressing demands for transformative justice. @joebiden @kamalaharris we are waiting.”

BLM then called on its 4 million Instagram followers to let the Biden-Harris team “know you’re waiting too.”
