The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation announced last month a $304,400 award to support Liberty Hill’s California Funders for Boys and Men of Color: Our Kids, Our Future Fund.
The funds include a generous match from Ellen and Clayton Kershaw, proceeds from the Dodgers Opening Day Black Lives Matter auction and sales of special-edition shirts. LADF Gives will award the funds to support 13 Southern California community partners working with the County of Los Angeles to develop the most comprehensive approach to youth development in the nation.
LADF and Dodger players continue their “In This Together” commitment with #AmplifyingVoices and future listening sessions with the community leaders of local grassroots social justice organizations to learn more about their work and impact.
“Ellen and I are proud to partner on the ‘In This Together’ campaign,” Kershaw said. “Along with my teammates, I remain committed to continuing to amplify the voices of Black leaders and organizations fighting for change. Change starts with tough conversations, and we as a team want to continue to listen, learn and take action to help build a more equitable society.”
Players will use their social media platforms to showcase nonprofits and elevate their efforts.
