To demand racial equality in the US and the rest of the world, The Weekend donates $500,000 which is a massive donation for the cause of Black Lives!
On the Instagram account The weekend shares the division of the amount donated, $200,0000 to Black Lives Matter Global Network, $200,000 to Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights campaign, and $100,000 to National Bail Out.
“Keep supporting our brothers and sisters out there risking everything to push for actual change for our black lives,” The Weekend wrote. “Urging everyone with big pockets to give and give big and if you have less please give what you can even if it’s a small amount.”
The protest for the Black Lives Matter led to the dissent for George Floyd, who was brutally killed by a police man who pinned his neck to the ground under his knee for 8 minutes, where Floyd passed away due to asphyxiation.
