YouTube has its faults, but it’s also one of the few brands that stepped up swiftly with a tangible response to widespread protests against police brutality.
On Friday, the company tweeted a pledge to donate $1 million “in support of efforts to address social injustice.” It was a vague promise at the time, motivated by what the company described as a desire to “stand in solidarity against racism and violence.”
We stand in solidarity against racism and violence. When members of our community hurt, we all hurt. We’re pledging $1M in support of efforts to address social injustice.
