Quavo Launches $10K SPARK Grants To Fight Gun Violence

Quavo is handing out money for initiatives aimed at preventing gun violence.

Migos rapper Quavo has launched a new “SPARKS Grants” program in partnership with his Rocket Foundation.

“I am honored to launch this grant program to honor Take and the countless families that have been affected by gun violence,” Quavo said, according to Variety. There is a lot of important work going on in ATL right now, and part of our mission is to uplift these organizations and support them to help save more lives.”

The grant program comes after Quavo met with Vice President Kamala Harris through his and his family’s involvement in the Congressional Black Caucus last September in Washington, D.C. According to the foundation’s YouTube channel, The Rocket Foundation joined the Community Justice Action Fund for a day of advocacy to raise awareness on gun violence and propose community-driven solutions. “So much gratitude to the Congressional Black Caucus and Congressional leadership for your advocacy and for providing a platform for us and other lawmakers to talk on this issue,” the foundation wrote. During the same month, President Joe Biden established the inaugural White House Office of Gun Violence Prevention, an effort placed under the supervision of Harris.
