Apple Donates To Criminal Justice Reform Nonprofit

The New York Post reports:

Apple CEO Tim Cook condemned the “senseless” police killing of George Floyd in a note to employees announcing that the tech giant would donate money in response to the incident. “I have heard from so many of you that you feel afraid — afraid in your communities, afraid in your daily lives, and, most cruelly of all, afraid in your own skin,” Cook said in the note, which was published by multiple news outlets.

“To our colleagues in the Black community — we see you,” he added. “You matter, your lives matter, and you are valued here at Apple.” Cook said Apple also made donations Sunday to organizations including the Equal Justice Initiative, a nonprofit focused on criminal justice reform. Cook did not name the other organizations or disclose how much money Apple donated, but he said the company would match certain employee donations two-for-one during the month of June.
