With a major contribution from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Jay-Z and Meek Mill’s REFORM Alliance will be sending 10 million surgical masks and “other personal protective equipment” to prisons and jails across the country.
Dorsey, who donated $10 million towards the cause, had this to say:
“I’m grateful REFORM exists. The criminal justice system needs to change. COVID-19 adds to the injustices, and REFORM is best suited to help.”
REFORM was founded in 2019 alongside Fanatics owner Michael Rubin and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. The organization is already responsible for sending over 100,000 facemasks to several correctional facilities.
