Nike Inc. To Donate $40 Million To Black Communities

With the recent murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, many people and corporations are getting an awakening of the harsh penalties the black community is faced to deal with at the hands of police brutality and outright racist behavior.

Millions of people have been brought together in the form of protest and solidarity to defiantly deny racism and to demand justice. Many big brands are coming forth to show support as well by donating time and making monetary donations as well as setting forth initiatives to help the black community.

Nike, Jordan Brand, and Converse have committed $40 million over the next four years to organizations within the Black community to “put social justice, education, and addressing racial inequality in America at the center of their work.”

We know Black Lives Matter. We must educate ourselves more deeply on the issues faced by Black communities and understand the enormous suffering and senseless tragedy racial bigotry creates.

Nike CEO, John Donahue
