Actor George Clooney and his wife, Lebanese-British lawyer Amal Clooney, announced today that they’re making a $1 million donation to fight hate groups, the AP reports.

The donation from the couple’s Clooney Foundation for Justice will go to support the Southern Poverty Law Center in its efforts to combat hate groups in the U.S., the story reports.

In a statement today, George Clooney said: “There are no two sides to bigotry and hate.”

“The Southern Poverty Law Center monitors the activities of more than 1,600 extremist groups in the U.S. and has used litigation to win judgments against white supremacist organizations,” the AP notes.
