Twins owners commit $25M to help combat social injustice in Twin Cities
The Pohlad Family, owners of the Minnesota Twins, announced that they are committing $25 million to combat racial injustice in the Twin Cities.
"Black people have experienced oppression and racism for far too long in this country," said Bill Pohlad, president of the Pohlad Family Foundation. "We condemn racism in all its forms, and we are firmly committed to helping to enact meaningful change. We know this will take time and effort, and we are committed to this work beyond this seminal moment in our country’s history."
The Pohlads will partner with other equally committed organizations to help change the systems that create racial inequities and marginalize people of color.
The commitment of $25 million is in addition to the ongoing work of the Pohlad Family Foundation that helps homelessness and housing stability.
