Jordan Peele and his Monkeypaw production company announced a generous $1.43 million ($1 million USD) donation to multiple racial justice organisations this week to support the well-being of the Black community. Jordan shared his plans on Instagram amid ongoing nationwide protests against police brutality and vowed to continue the fight for equality.
"Jordan Peele and Monkeypaw Productions are proud to donate $1 million across five organisations we see as essential to the health and lives of Black people," Jordan wrote. "We are committed to continued action against a system rooted in the violence against and oppression of the Black community."
Jordan's donation will go towards five organisations: Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective, Black Lives Matter, Equal Justice Initiative, Fair Fight, and Transgender Gender-Variant & Intersex Justice Project.
