Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds try to do their part amid protests against police brutality.
The married duo went to Instagram on Sunday to share that they donated $ 200,000 to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund (DFL).
“We never had to worry about preparing our children for different legal rules or what could happen if we stopped in the car,” they wrote in their article, shared on their two accounts.
“We don’t know what it’s like to live this life day after day. We cannot imagine feeling this kind of fear and anger. We are ashamed that in the past we have allowed ourselves not to know how deeply rooted systemic racism is. “
Lively added that the two “want to learn about each other’s experiences and tell our children about everything, everything, especially our own bonding.”
She wrote that the couple’s gift, which comes during days of protests across America after the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, is “just the beginning” and that they “want to use our privilege and our platform to be an ally. And play a role in relieving the pain of so many people who feel they lack this great experience. “
