On June 24, Lizzo took to Instagram announce their promise to donate after the Supreme Court overturned Roe V. Wade, the landmark ruling that established a person’s constitutional right to an abortion in the United States.

“I pledge $500,000 from my upcoming tour for Planned Parenthood and Abortion Rights. Live Nation has agreed to match – to make it $1 MILLION,” she wrote. “The most important thing is action and loud voices.”

Lizzo shared that she will be donating to Planned Parenthood, the National Network of Abortion Funds, and other organizations with similar missions as they “need funding to continue providing services to people most harmed by this ban.”

“Black women and women of color have historically had disproportionately less access to family planning resources,” she added. “It’s a great loss, but not a new one.”
