Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been vocal the past few days in support of the protests taking place in Minneapolis following the tragic death of George Floyd at the hands of police officer Derek Chauvin.

Kaepernick is now backing the protesters directly and has launched a fund to hire top defense lawyers for people arrested protesting police brutality in Minneapolis.

“The new Know Your Rights Camp Legal Defense Initiative will pay for legal assistance for people protesting in the Minneapolis area, its website said. Kaepernick’s charitable arm, Know Your Rights Camp, is paying for the project.”

Floyd’s death is an example of the police brutality against African-Americans that prompted Kaepernick to begin protesting in 2016.
