Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey announced Wednesday that he is donating $3 million of his own money to Colin Kaepernick’s fund to pay legal costs for protesters who get arrested while fighting for justice for George Floyd.
Kaepernick said he’s already assembled a top-notch team of defense attorneys to help out, but they’ve been asking for donations from supporters on the outside.
Well, Dorsey has answered the call with a HUGE 7-figure donation, saying he’s putting up $3 million of his own money into a new fund he calls Start Small, LLC, aimed at Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp.
More #startsmall grants.
$3mm to Colin @Kaepernick7’s @yourrightscamp 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. https://t.co/WGgKziHnwB

Dorsey’s pledge continues a string of donations to noble causes. He previously donated $1 BILLION to COVID-19 relief, and joined forces with Rihanna for a $4.2 million grant for domestic abuse victims in Los Angeles.
