Kaepernick announced Wednesday that his Know Your Rights Camp would be expanded to add a national legal defense initiative to “defend arrested Freedom Fighters” amid the protests emerging over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.
Dorsey said he would be donating $3 million to Kaepernick’s group to “advance the liberation and well-being of Black and Brown communities through education, self-empowerment, mass-mobilization to elevate the next generation of change leaders.”
Dorsey announced his donation to the group Wednesday along with a series of donations to other organizations as part of his "start small grants" initiative launched in April.
Twitter CEO and founder Jack Dorsey is donating $3 million to former NFL player-turned-activist Colin Kaepernick’s group Know Your Rights Camp.
Dorsey also announced a series of other donations to organizations, many of which are providing aid to people impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
