George Clooney and wife Amal Clooney donate $1 million to fight hate groups


  • The couple donated the money through their charity the Clooney Foundation for Justice to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

  • The donation was given as a direct reaction to the events in Charlottesville where white supremacists chanted Nazi slogans and one of the white supremacists drove his car into a crowd of protestors killing one woman and injuring 19 more.

  • Statement from the couple:

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.

Amal and I wanted to add our voice (and financial assistance) to the ongoing fight for equality. There are no two sides to bigotry and hate
