Jordan and his brand, produced by Nike Inc., announced Friday that they will be donating $100 million to “causes and organizations dedicated to ensuring racial equality, social justice, and greater access to education.”
The donations come after Jordan condemned the killing of George Floyd in police custody last week Floyd’s death has sparked global attention for racial equality, justice, and an end to police brutality.
In his statement on Sunday, Jordan shared his condolences with Floyd’s family as well as “the countless others whose lives have been painfully senselessly taken through acts of racism and injustice.”
“Our unified voice needs to put pressure on leaders to change our laws, or else we need to use our vote to create systemic change,” he wrote. “Every one of us needs to be part of the solution, and we must work together to ensure justice for all.”
We here at Sheen Magazine salute Jordan for his generous contributions to fight for racial equality.
