Clooney Foundation For Justice
Amal and George created the organization in 2016 to stand up for individuals who are unfairly targeted around the globe. A year later, the foundation joined forces with Southern Poverty Law to combat hate groups in the US following the deadly violence that took place in Charlottesville, VA. "What happened in Charlottesville, and what is happening in communities across our country, demands our collective engagement to stand up to hate," George and Amal said in a statement. "Amal and I wanted to add our voice (and financial assistance) to the ongoing fight for equality. There are no two sides to bigotry and hate."
Through the foundation, George and Amal have also partnered with UNICEF to aid Syrian refugees with educational opportunities and launched Trialwatch, an initiative focused on responding to trials around the world that violate human rights.
