Nickelodeon Announces Large Donation To Black Lives Matter Movement Amid Protests

Nickelodeon is giving back big to the Black Lives Matter movement amid ongoing protests for racial equality.

The network announced tonight, June 5, that they’ll be donating $5 million to several organizations including the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, National Bail Out, Amnesty International and others in an effort to amplify black voices and communities.

“We’re committed to amplifying the voices of Black communities, we condemn system racism, and we honor George Floyd and other victims of racial injustice,” Nickelodeon’s statement reads.

Earlier this week, Nickelodeon defended itself after going dark for 8 minutes and 46 seconds to recognize George Floyd‘s murder.

“Unfortunately, some kids live in fear everyday,” the network responded to one parent who said the statement and commercial scared her own children.
