JJ Abrams, Katie McGrath, & Bad Robot Commit $10 Million to Anti-Racist Agendas

JJ Abrams, his wife Katie McGrath, and his production company Bad Robot are committing $10 million to anti-racist agendas over the next five years.

“We at Bad Robot are grateful to the many scholars, activists, organizers and leaders fighting on the frontlines of change in our systemically unjust country. It is that constellation of thinkers and doers who have the blueprint to a more perfect, fair, equitable, and kind union,” Bad Robot began in a statement on Instagram.

Between Bad Robot and The Katie McGrath and JJ Abrams Family Foundation, $10 million is being committed “over the next five years to organizations and efforts committed to anti-racist agendas that close the gaps, life the poor and build a just America for all.”

Initial investments of $200,000 each are being made to the following organizations: Black Futures Lab, Black Lives Matter LA, Community Coalition, Equal Justice Initiative, and Know Your Rights Camp.
