Rihanna is putting $15 million behind his belief that climate change is a social justice issue by making that significant donation to the movement through her Clara Lionel Foundation.

These are a series of non-profit entities such as ‘Climate Justice Alliance’ or ‘The Movement for Black Lives’ which, in addition, have benefited from the assistance offered by the solidarity initiative #StartSmall, devised by the former managing director of Twitter, Jack Dorsey.

The Barbadian singer announced the donation to 18 climate justice organizations that work to improve the living conditions of the most disadvantaged communities in seven Caribbean countries and the United States, exposed to the dangers of climate change and global warming.

“Climate disasters, which are growing in frequency and intensity, do not impact all communities equally, and communities of color and island nations face the brunt of climate change,” he said in a statement.

Putting an end to systematic discrimination against minorities is another of the fronts in which Rihanna wants to get involved through this measure.

In her note, the also designer and businesswoman stressed that a good part of these organizations are led by women, members of the black community and also of the LGBTQ+ collective, which is why it has encouraged other firms and institutions to bet on original and different approaches to solve problems, while “elevating” people in need of opportunities and also being freed from negative prejudices.

At the end of last November, Rihanna was declared a national heroine by the government of her country and given the title of “excellent fair” while Barbados stopped having Queen Elizabeth II of England as head of state and celebrated become a republic for the first time in history.

Months earlier, in August, she was officially named a billionaire when Forbes estimated her net worth at $1.7 billion. Most of her wealth is based on her cosmetics company, Fenty Beauty, which is worth approximately $1.4 billion. The remaining $270 million comes from the lingerie brand, as well as her music and acting career.
