Sony Music Group has a $100 million fund to support social justice and anti-racist initiatives around the world. The company, inclusive of its recorded music and content divisions and music publishing company, will begin to donate to organisations that foster equal rights.
The announcement comes after worldwide protests following the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota. Several corporations have extended their support to the Black Lives Matter movement and equal rights initiatives.
Announcing the fund, Rob Stringer, Chairman, Sony Music Group, said, “Racial injustice is a global issue that affects our artists, songwriters, our people, and of course, society at large. We stand against discrimination everywhere and we will take action accordingly with our community fully involved in effectively using these funds.”
Sony Music Group has established the fund with support of its sister entertainment company, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and all divisions of Sony Corporation.
