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://www.knowyourrightscamp.com/ Know Your Rights Campknowyourrightscamp.com3,473Twitter Ads info and privacy789 people are talking about thishe’s giving $3 million to former NFL player Colin Kaepernick’s organization Know Your Rights Camp.

Dorsey is the the latest tech executive to give to anti-racist organizations in the wake of widespread protests over the killing of George Floyd, a black man in Minneapolis. A video of a white policeman kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nearly 9 minutes while he pleaded that he couldn’t breathe was shared widely on social media, igniting demonstrations across the world.

Dorsey has also faced recent criticism from President Donald Trump and right-wing conservatives for placing a “public interest notice” over a recent tweet by Trump for the first time. Twitter said Trump’s post, which said, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts,” violated its policies about glorifying violence. 

Kaepernick is best known for his time playing for the San Francisco 49ers, where he kneeled during the national anthem in protest of police killings against black people. The NFL and many conservatives criticized the gesture, saying it disrespected soldiers. Kapernick’s organization educates young people about their rights.

The grant will help “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,” Dorsey stated.

Dorsey joins other tech companies and executives giving to organizations in the wake of Floyd’s murder. Google CEO Sundar Pichai said Wednesday the company will provide $12 million in funding to organizations working to address racial inequities.

(CNN)Hollywood is inching closer to getting back to work, with the entertainment industry’s guilds and unions signing off on a 22-page guideline document designed to establish safety protocols for producing movies and TV in the age of coronavirus.The agreement comes after a protracted period of negotiation among the various constituencies — including actors, directors and crews — and relies on extensive testing, temperature checks, cleaning measures and physical distancing when possible. The parties also acknowledge that revisions might be necessary going forward.Certain activities, such as writing and casting, are still encouraged to be conducted virtually whenever possible. At the same time, other parts of production — including live studio audiences — are being discouraged, with restrictions like social-distancing measures when used.Actors and other performers, the report notes, are “most vulnerable because they cannot wear PPE [personal protective equipment] when cameras are rolling, and frequently will not be able to engage in physical distancing.” That will require greater testing frequency for them and those with whom they are in close contact.Content by CNN UnderscoredRetailers are offering major sales in honor of healthcare workersIf you’re a medical professional or first responder, you can find savings on a variety of products that might make life a little easier right now.There are some activities, such as makeup and fight scenes, where stronger safeguards aren’t possible, the report acknowledges.
