On June 3, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey donated $3 million from his Small Grants Fund to former NFL player Colin Kaepernick's Know Your Rights Camp. This organization focuses on the liberation, education, and empowerment of black and brown communities across the U.S. The main goal is for the next generation of black and brown youth to reach their full potential as leaders of the future.


Jack Dorsey Donates Amid Second Week of #BlackLivesMatter Protests

As the U.S. enters its second week of #BlackLivesMatter protests inspired by the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, Jack Dorsey directed his attention toward the current situation and donated a portion of his $1 billion pledge to Small Grants Fund towards Colin Kaepernick's Know Your Rights Camp organization. With the help of donations, Kaepernick's campaign funds black and brown communities all over the U.S. who have little to no access to education, legal resources, support for self-empowerment, and more. There are Know Your Rights Camps in cities across the nation, including one in Europe:

  • Atlanta, Georgia
  • Baltimore, Maryland
  • Miami, Florida
  • New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Amsterdam, The Netherlands
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • New York, New York
  • Oakland, California
