Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul are teaming up for a very important cause.

On Wednesday, the NBA stars announced the launch of their Social Change Fund initiative, created alongside a team of philanthropists and entrepreneurs to support critical issues impacting the Black community, such as racial equality and criminal justice reform.

According to the mission statement listed on their website, the goal of Social Change Fund is to "invest in and support organizations that are working to liberate Black people and advocate for indigenous people and communities of color through the lens of policy solutions, community representation and narrative change."

"Our partner organizations work to accelerate social change and sustainably build a fair, equitable society," the statement continued. "Our priorities are ending police brutality, championing criminal justice reform, enabling economic equity, supporting voting and civic engagement, and advocating for the human rights of all Black lives."
