EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – In a statement released on his Instagram account on Wednesday morning, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is pledging $1 million to, “improve our police training and address systematic racism through education and advocacy.”

The lengthy statement comes just nine days after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis while he was in police custody. Floyd’s death has led to protests across the country demanding action against police brutality and systematic racism against the black community.
