Take Part In #StarTrekUnited With Curated Episodes, Support Black Lives Matter Organizations

For every fan that tweets with #StarTrekUnitedGives on Wednesday, June 17, CBS All Access will donate $1 to Black Lives Matter organizations.

From the start, Star Trek has encouraged its viewers to imagine an equitable universe where differences are appreciated and uplifted.

In Gene Roddenberry’s own words, “Star Trek was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day it begins not just to tolerate, but take a special delight in differences…”

Roddenberry’s vision is just as vital today. CBS All Access and the Star Trek franchise created #StarTrekUnited because, like Star Trek, we must champion diversity, equality, and the differences between us in order to ensure the best possible future.
