To celebrate Black History Month, Apple supports Race and Equality in its work for racial equity in the Americas

Washington, D.C., January 26th, 2021.– The International Institute on Race, Equality and Human Rights (Race and Equality) has been chosen by Apple to be one of six organizations that will receive support to advance their work promoting racial equality in the U.S. and around the world. The announcement comes as Apple launches its initiative to celebrate Black History Month, including the launch of the Black Unity collection of the Apple Watch.

In announcing the collaboration, Race and Equality’s Executive Director Carlos Quesada remarked, “We are proud to take part in Apple’s global initiative to honor and celebrate Afro-descendant culture and history.” The other organizations that will receive support through the initiative are the Black Lives Matter Support Fund (via the Tides Foundation); European Network Against Racism; Leadership Conference Education Fund; NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, Inc.; and Souls Grown Deep.

Race and Equality is thankful for Apple’s recognition of our work defending and promoting the human rights of Afro-descendant people in the Americas. Our efforts will benefit greatly from this support. We pledge to continue our struggle for a more just and equitable society for all.
