The inequitable and brutal treatment of Black and African Americans is unacceptable in our country and must stop. Black Lives Matter. Amazon stands in solidarity with the Black community – our employees, customers, and partners – in the fight against systemic racism and injustice.
To support education and justice for Black Americans, Amazon has recently donated $10 million to organizations supporting justice and equity for the Black community, contributing to the NAACP, National Urban League, Thurgood Marshall College Fund, and UNCF, among others. You can read more about our support here.
We also want to make it easy for you to help support charities who are working to help Black communities. Customers can now donate to the NAACP and the National Urban League to fund immediate efforts to bring about social justice and improve the lives of Black Americans in communities across the country.
