Bad Robot Productions and the Katie McGrath
& JJ Abrams Family Foundation announced charitable donations to a number of organizations “committed to anti-racist agendas.”
In a statement posted on the Bad Robot Instagram
page on Monday, they announced a pledge of $10 million over five years to various organizations. For starters, they will donate $200,000 each to the following groups: Black Lives Matter La, Black Futures Lab, Community Coalition, Equal Justice Initiative, and Know Your Rights Camp.
“Enough is enough,” the statement began. “Enough police brutality. Enough outsized privilege. Enough polite conversation. Enough white comfort.”
“The centuries long neglect and abuse of our Black brothers and sisters can only be addressed by scalable investment,” it continued. Corporate and private philanthropy can never achieve the impact needed to address these systemic inequities, but companies and individuals who are able must do what we can until our political leaders lead.”
