Change.org to donate $6M to racial justice after criticism
June 30, 2020
Change.org has announced plans to create a $6 million fund focused on racial justice causes, according to Fast Company. The news comes after allegations that the organization was profiting from petitions related to the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, with former Change.org employees urging the company in a Medium post to donate the money raised. Change.org is backed by Obvious Ventures, Uprising and others, including a variety of angel investors.
