BEAVERTON, OREGON — Following its “For Once, Don’t Do It” video that denounced racism and called for sweeping structural change (see it below), American multinational corporation Nike, Inc. has announced a $40 million USD effort to support the USA’s black community. A joint effort from the Swoosh, Jordan Brand and Converse, the money will aid a wide range of organizations that promote social justice, work against racial inequality and educate citizens.

“Systemic racism and the events that have unfolded across America over the past few weeks serve as an urgent reminder of the continued change needed in our society. We know Black Lives Matter. We must educate ourselves more deeply on the issues faced by Black communities and understand the enormous suffering and senseless tragedy racial bigotry creates,” said John Donahoe, President and CEO of Nike Inc. in an official statement. “The Nike Inc. family can always do more but will never stop striving to role model how a diverse company acts. We will continue our focus on being more representative of our consumers while doing our part in the communities we serve.”
