Green Bay Packers Donate $50,000 In Support Of Social Justice

The Green Bay Packers are donating grants of $50,000 to five social justice organizations in Kenosha, Madison and Milwaukee. This initiative is a part of their pledge to support social justice and racial equality.

“Our players and the Packers organization remain committed to doing our part to address the pervasive issues of racial inequality and social injustice in our communities,”

– Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. 

The organization donated funds earlier this year to Milwaukee organizations, Boys and Girls Club and Sherman Phoenix totaling $150,000 and personal $250,000 donations from Laurie and Mark Murphy to various Madison, Milwaukee and Green Bay groups.

The Green Bay Packers have supported the efforts to improve communities to improve and invoke change in racism, oppression, injustice and inequality. The team and players have invested funds through education and economic advancement, criminal justice reform and programs to improve police-community relations.

“We are proud to contribute to these nonprofit organizations who are working every day to create and enhance access to education and economic opportunities and develop communities where children, adults and families can grow and thrive.”

-President/ CEO Mark Murphy 

The NFL commits to support social justice as well.
