Michael Jordan is donating an astounding $100 million fighting for racial justice and equality.
The former basketball star and his Jordan brand announced on Friday, June 5, 2020, that over the next 10 years, he and his brand would give $100 million to “organizations dedicated to ensuring racial equality, social justice and greater access to education .”
The statement goes on to say:
We represent a proud family that has overcome obstacles, fought against discrimination in communities worldwide and that works everyday to erase the stain of racism and and the damage of injustice.
It’s 2020, and our family now includes anyone who aspires to our way of life. Yet as much as things have changed, the worst remains the same.
Black lives matter. This is not a controversial statement. Until the ingrained racism that allows our country’s institutions to fail is completely eradicated, we will remain committed to protecting and improving the lives of Black people.”
Craig Williams, president of the Jordan Brand, also released a statement, saying:
We must join forced with the community, government and civic leaders to create a lasting impact together. There is still more work for us to do to drive real impact for the Black Community. We embrace the responsibility.”
