Rihanna has been making a big showing supporting her belief that climate change is a social justice problem, pledging $15 million through her Clara Lionel Foundation.
The We Found Love singer announced Tuesday the donation to 18 climate rights organizations operating in seven Caribbean nations and the U.S., including the Climate Justice Alliance, the Indigenous Environment Network and the Black Lives Matter movement.
The grants, which will be awarded in partnership with Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey’s # StartSmall humanitarian initiative, will target groups featuring female, LGBT, and black and indigenous leaders because their communities are most vulnerable.
Donors must build partnerships with grass-roots organizations who recognize their deep understanding of what is needed to build climate justice in their own communities, said Justine Lucas, executive director of the Clara Lionel Foundation, in a statement.
