DAY6’s Jae and rapper pH-1 have shown their support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

On May 31, Jae posted a link on his Twitter account to a website containing information about the movement along with a screenshot of his personal $1,000 donation to the Minnesota Freedom Fund. The Minnesota Freedom Fund describes their mission as, “pay[ing] criminal bail and immigration bond for those who cannot afford to as [they] seek to end discriminatory, coercive, and oppressive jailing.”

pH-1 also took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the movement. On May 30, the rapper shared a link to a petition calling for justice for George Floyd.

Then, on May 31 pH-1 tweeted again to share his determination to learn more about the movement. He also posted a link to the website containing information about the Black Lives Matter movement and shared his $3,000 donation to the Black Lives Matter fund. He added, “I’m doing my best to help and support.”

Black Lives Matter is an activist movement that campaigns for an end to violence and systemic racism towards the black community, including police brutality and killings of black people. Last week, outrage was sparked once again by the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, after he was pinned to the ground by a white police officer in Minneapolis. Protests have spread across the nation and many people are donating to help the movement.

Other Korean artists and K-pop artists who have voiced their support for the movement are Jay Park, who donated $10,000 to the movement and called for change on his social media platforms, as well as Tiger JK and f(x)’s Amber.
