Sony Corporation of America announced that it has made donations to two organizations that are working to address the recent hate crimes against the Asian American and Pacific Islander community: Asian Americans Advancing Justice – AAJC and the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF).
These donations, which will be used to advance the civil and human rights of all Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, are part of a larger social justice campaign and come from Sony’s Global Social Justice Fund on behalf of Sony Corporation and Sony’s companies in the United States, including Sony Music Entertainment, Sony Music Publishing, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Sony Electronics.

“Racial injustice is a global issue that affects us all,” said Kenichiro Yoshida, Chairman, President and CEO, Sony Corporation. “Today I join together with the leaders of Sony’s businesses in the U.S. to denounce the appalling violence against the Asian American community. As a company that cherishes diversity as one of our core values, we are committed to the human rights of all people. Sony places great importance on treating everyone with dignity and respect, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, religious beliefs or physical ability. I stand shoulder to shoulder with our group leaders to condemn this ongoing violence and discrimination.”
In June 2020, Sony Music Group led to the establishment of a $100 million Global Social Justice Fund with the full support of all Sony Group companies. This fund is used to support initiatives that promote social justice, anti-racism initiatives and to foster diversity, equity and inclusion both inside and outside of the company around the world.
