“We need to do more than just talk about racism in America,” the studio wrote. “We need to do more than listen to the cries of our Black communities. We need to do more than learn about the systemic racial injustice all around the world.”

Bungie concluded the opening of the livestream by sharing a list of organizations viewers could contribute to.
