Angelina Jolie has donated $ 200,000 to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, which is committed to racial equality. The 45-year-old actress was urged to do so by the death of George Floyd, the black man who was killed last week by police brutality.
“Rights don’t belong to one group to give to another group”
“Rights do not belong to one group to give to another group. Discrimination and impunity cannot be tolerated, explained or justified,” Angelina said in a statement to US media. “I hope we as Americans can come together to address the deep structural flaws in our society.”
The actress, Special Envoy for the United Nations Refugee Agency, makes regular donations to charity organizations. She also pulled her wallet during the corona crisis to donate to an organization that provides meals to children who depend on school lunches.
