George And Amal Clooney Are Spending A Lot To Fight Hate

In response to both the insane violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, VA and the reluctance of Trump to condemn any white supremacists, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has partnered with the Clooney Foundation for Justice to combat hate groups in America. The George & Amal Clooney Foundation has donated a $1 million grant through the Clooney Foundation for Justice.

George said along in a statement along with the huge donation, “Amal and I wanted to add our voice to the ongoing fight for equality. There are no two sides to bigotry and hate.” “We are proud to support the Southern Poverty Law Center in its efforts to prevent violent
extremism in the United States. What happened in Charlottesville, and what is happening in communities across our country, demands our collective engagement to stand up to hate.”

The Clooney Foundation for Justice was co-founded by the Clooneys in 2016 to advance justice in courtrooms, classrooms and communities around the world.
