Colin Kaepernick has made it clear that he’s dedicated to advocating against injustice. After raising awareness about police brutality through kneeling during last year’s NFL season and funding his Know Your Rights foundation, Kaepernick is now standing besides rapper Meek Mill in his fight with extensive probation and harsh sentencing practices.

Most recently, the former NFL star took to social media share a hopeful update from the rapper. “Spoke to Meek Mill & he wanted ppl to know regardless of his unjust situation, he’s in good spirits & humbled by the support the people have shown him,” he wrote. “We’ll continue to fight against the harsh sentencing practices that have affect Meek & millions of other POC for generations.”

Kaepernick joins the ranks of celebrities using their platforms to speak out against Meek Mill’s two-to-four year prison sentence. Jay-Z used a recent stop on his 4:44 tour and an op-ed piece in the New York Times in support of the rapper and what many perceive to be an unfair and extremely excessive sentence.
