"Color Of Change believes in the power of images and supports those working to change the rules in Hollywood so that inclusive, empathetic and human portrayals of Black people and people of color are prominent on the screen," Rashad Robinson, executive director of Color Of Change said in a press release.
In order to fund this project, they created an initiative called "Give a Child the Universe." For every $10 received, a child will get a ticket.
“The 'Wrinkle in Time' story is one that children from all backgrounds and walks of life can identify with and draw inspiration from, and we are thrilled to celebrate this film in a meaningful way, through the vision of Ava DuVernay and in partnership with Color Of Change,” Nikkole Denson-Randolph, vice president of special content for AMC Theaters added.
