Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick announced Thursday that he will donate $100,000 to a coronavirus relief fund to aid black and brown communities.

The fund will focus on providing food, shelter relief and protective equipment to help ease the suffering of the crisis. Kaepernick is focusing on people of color because the crisis is affecting them in higher numbers.

“Black and brown communities are being disproportionally devastated by COVID-19 because of hundreds of years of structural racism,” Kaepernick said in a video posted to his Twitter account. “That’s why we’ve established the Know Your Rights Camp COVID-19 Relief Fund to help address these issues.”
