Uber is showing its commitment to Black Lives Matter by waiving delivery fees for Black-owned businesses for the remainder of 2020.
"Uber stands in solidarity with the Black community and with peaceful protests against the injustice and racism that have plagued our nation for too long," CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said in a statement. "My hope is that if each of us recommits to doing all we can to counter bigotry wherever we see it, change will follow."
The app is even making it easier to locate Black-owned businesses in users' delivery areas by offering a prompt when it's opened and Uber is donating $1 million to the Center for Policing Equity and the Equal Justice Initiative.
"We know this isn’t enough. It won’t be enough until we see true racial justice. But we plan to work day in and day out to improve, learn and grow as a company," Khosrowshahi said in the email.
