Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Archewell Foundation has named the charities it will be supporting including a mental health charity, an online racial justice movement and two groups that promote diversity in media.
On Friday, less than a week on from their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Sussexes’ foundation announced that it will back Mind, the British mental health charity that was publicly supportive of Markle after she revealed her struggles with her mental health during the interview.
Mind also publicly criticized Piers Morgan for his comments that he didn’t believe Markle’s experience with suicidal thoughts.
Archewell is also backing Color of Change, a group that describes itself as the U.S.’s “largest online racial justice organization” that works on criminal justice reform, voting freedom and economic justice.
In their interview with Winfrey, the Sussexes’ talked at length about the issues of racism in the British press and the foundation is looking to address issues of media diversity by backing two groups, the U.K.’s PressPad Charitable Foundation and the U.S.’s URL Media.
PressPad, a social enterprise that matches aspiring journalists with affordable and subsidized accommodation from fellow journalists, wrote on Twitter: “We are delighted to announce that we have just registered a sister charity, The PressPad Charitable Foundation, and are thrilled that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their Archewell Foundation will be among our first donors. We’re excited by such positive action after difficult yet important moments of reckoning for the U.K. media.”
Launched in January, URL Media describes itself as a “multi-platform network of high-performing Black and Brown media organizations.”
