About Google’s Racial Justice Work
As an information company, Google believes in the power of knowledge and information to bridge gaps in understanding and foster inclusion. Recently, Googlers have spearheaded projects like the digitization of African American history with the NMAAHC. The Equal Justice initiative is a cornerstone grantee in Google.org’s $20MM Inclusion portfolio, an investment in innovators who are using data and technology to advance justice for all. For the past year, volunteers from Google have also been working closely with EJI to digitize the data and tell the stories of this lesser-known period in history. As a proud sponsor of the Global Citizen Festival, Google is excited to work with Andra Day and EJI to bring this message to a broader audience.
