Jack Dorsey Commits $3 Million To Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp

Twitter and Square CEO, Jack Dorsey is committing $3 million to former NFL star, Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp. The camp works 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”.

 

Jack announced the donation via a Twitter post saying he’s committing $3 million to the cause. The billionaire had put the money into a new fund he calls Start Small, LLC.

 

 

Know Your Rights Camp started a “legal defense initiative” to cover mounting legal bills for the protesters in Minnesota, where George Floyd was killed. The defense initiative has since expanded to other states in the US.

Kaepernick said he’s already put together a top-notch team of defense attorneys for the cause. However, they’ve been calling for donations from people on the outside.

 

Dorsey also announced $5 million for World Central Kitchen to provide meals in Oakland during the “ongoing health, economic and humanitarian crises” and $500,000 to Sister Hearts LA, which provides ex-offenders with a safe environment to live in.

 

 

Dorsey additionally committed $1 million for Dig Deep H20 to connect hot and cold running water in remote Indigenous homes and $50,000 for Project NIA, which works to end arrest, detention, and incarceration of children and young adults.

 

These donations follow Jack’s pledge $1 billion to coronavirus relief in April 2020. He had also partnered with Rihanna to provide a $4.2 million grant for domestic abuse victims in Los Angeles.
