When I committed to my Million Dollar Pledge, my goal was to help organizations as well as support people, that help people. With that in mind, I reached out to my brother @KevinDurant from the @Warriors and asked what social justice organization he is passionate about and where he wanted me to make my next donation. Kevin quickly replied and surprised me by picking an organization I know – Silicon Valley De-Bug! De-Bug initiates and leads campaigns advancing the rights of youth, workers, immigrants and those impacted by police and the criminal justice system. In addition to selecting De-Bug, my brother KD has generously decided to match my donation of $10,000, with $10,000 of his own, making the total donation to De-Bug $20,000!!! My brother Kevin, you are truly a champion on, and off the court. Thank you for helping me complete part of my #MillionDollarPledge! #10for10

It’s important to identify people doing good work in the community to help break the cycle and the systemic oppression that we are facing everyday. I worked with Silicon Valley De-Bug before by having them speak to the youth at my free Know Your Rights Camp in Oakland about their legal rights, criminal justice reform and police accountability. When my brother @KevinDurant chose them as an organization that I should donate to as part of my Million Dollar Pledge, I quickly agreed. De-Bug’s campaigns have been local policy setting, state legislation, and moving the national political landscape. In 2017 they had active campaigns in bail reform, jail reform, police accountability housing rights and challenging the immigration and criminal justice nexus. The $20k KD and I are donating to De-Bug will go to help families to visit their loved ones in prison, a Youth Right to Counsel Public Education Campaign, the Community Release Project and a Day in Court Campaign. See the details on http://kaepernick7.com and get involved and check out the good work De-Bug is doing at http://siliconvalleydebug.org. Thank YOU, De-Bug for all the hard work you do uplifting our community and fighting for our rights. Power to the people. #MillionDollarPledge #10for10
