Kaepernick Just Donated $25,000 to Help Immigrant Youth Affected By Trump’s Repeal of DACA

San Fransisco 49er‚Äôs quarterback Colin Kaepernick has decided to use his own money and the money he has made from his jersey sales to help the people of the Chicago area by supportingthe largest immigrant youth-led organization in the nation to deal with Trump’s removal of DACA.

The 28-year -old member of Kappa Alpha Psi, who refused to stand during the national anthem during NFL games last year said he would donate the first $1 million he made from last season to organizations assisting communities affected by racial injustice and police brutality.

‚ÄúI‚Äôve been very blessed to be in this position and be able to make the kind of money I do,‚ÄĚ Kaepernick said. ‚ÄúI have to help these communities. It‚Äôs not right that they‚Äôre not put in the position to succeed or given those opportunities to succeed,‚ÄĚ he said last year.

‚ÄúI will donate¬†one million dollars plus all the proceeds of my jersey sales from the 2016 season to organizations working in oppressed communities, 100k a month for 10 months,‚ÄĚ he said on his¬†website.

One of these communities just so happens to be immigrant children who are currently being threatened by the repeal of DACA.

For his recent pledge, which was announced yesterday,  Colin donated $25,000 to United We Dream, the largest immigrant youth-led organization in the nation.

“We organize and advocate for the dignity and fair treatment of immigrant youth and families, regardless of immigration status,” the about section on United We Dream‘s website states.

According to Kaepernick’s website, the $25,000 will go toward the following:

  • Addressing the inequities and obstacles faced by immigrant youth. Over 100,000 ¬†members. Current focus: Organize and work for immigrant children to keep DACA in force.
  • 10k for upcoming travel. Air, hotel, lodging, and ground¬†transportation. ¬†United We Dream recently held event in Washington DC and sent 300 dreamers to lobby to keep DACA. This budget will pay for 75-100 attendees for a¬†similar rally upcoming.
  • 10k for series of upcoming local gatherings in NY, CT, TX, FL, NM. Facilities rent and security, transportation, food, technology
  • 5k for text service for the network of over 100,000¬†members.

Along with this $25,000 donation, Kaepernick has donated to DREAM (Formerly RBI Harlem) a baseball program in Harlem, Coalition For The Homeless, and War on Children.

The Houston (TX)¬†Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. just released the following “Disaster Response Update” regarding Hurricane Harvey and the work that the members of the fraternity are doing to help survivors in the city. The message, which was penned by the alumni chapter’s¬†Polemarch Ronald J. Lockett, II, covers FEMA, volunteer opportunities and ways that people can donate.

Read the full letter below

The Houston (TX) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. is working with the other area alumni chapters, the Kappa Disaster Response & Recovery Team, FEMA, the Red Cross, and the City of Houston.¬† We have offered the Houston Alumni Kappa House as a POD (Point of Distribution) related to the flood recovery effort.¬† There are truckloads of resources that are already moving into position to service the area.¬† This will allow us to play a vital role in the response and the ongoing long-term recovery efforts.¬† At this time, the Kappa House (3349 Southmore Blvd, Houston, TX 77004) has not been activated as an official FEMA Point of Distribution, but¬†we will begin accepting supplies from those able to donate starting¬†Thursday, August 31, 2017 at 11:00am¬†–¬†4:00pm¬†and continuing daily (*Suggested supply list attached)

There are many immediate volunteer opportunities at shelters in Houston and the surrounding communities where our assistance is greatly needed.  If you are safely able to leave your home to serve our fellow neighbors at a shelter, please do.  We encourage you to wear Kappa Alpha Psi paraphernalia. (Thank you to those who were able to volunteer over the past few days)

Monetary donations can be made directly to the Houston (TX) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi to purchase supplies, water, clothing, food for displaced members & their families along with the citizens of Houston communities: www.houkappa.com/donate 

We have recently spoken to the Polemarchs of the Beaumont & Port (TX) Arthur Alumni Chapters and they are dealing with the storm as well. They have several brothers who are currently waiting to be evacuated from their flooded homes while the rain is still pouring down. Please keep them and their families in your prayers as well as those in the Lake Charles, LA area.

We encourage affected individuals to immediately register with FEMA. Registering online at: www.DisasterAssistance.gov or www.fema.gov is the quickest way to register for FEMA assistance.  Those who do not have access to the internet may register by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362).  Those interested in becoming a part of FEMA’s standing disaster workforce should visit: https://careers.fema.gov/reservists-program

Please stay safe and heed the guidance and warnings of local authorities.  Keep the Faith and remember your life is more important than any material possessions.

Yours in the Bond,
