George and Amal Clooney Donate $1M to Fight Hate

In an effort to curb the hate stemming from recent events in Charlottesville, George and Amal Clooney are putting their money where their mouths are.

The Clooney Foundation for Justice is partnering with Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), donating a $1 million grant to fight hate groups in the United States.

The SPLC is a U.S. nonprofit organization that is currently tracking 1600 extremist groups across the country.

“What happened in Charlottesville, and what is happening in communities across our country, demands our collective engagement to stand up to hate," George and Amal said in a statement issued by the SPLC.

Further details are set to be announced at a later date.
