George and Amal Clooney are donating some major money to fight hate groups. The couple gave $1 million to the Southern Poverty Law Center to support the group's efforts to prevent violent extremism.

In a statement, the couple said that what happened in Charlottesville demands "our collective engagement to stand up to hate."
