YouTube launches $100m fund dedicated to amplifying and developing the voices of Black creators and artists

The initiative was announced by YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki today (June 11) in a letter to the platform’s users, addressing initiatives to support the Black community, the impact of COVID-19, and how YouTube is working on behalf of creators. The first project from the fund launches this coming Saturday (June 13), with YouTube hosting a live stream fundraising event produced by YouTube Originals (YTO), called Bear Witness, Take Action.
