As tensions simmer across the United States, and around the globe; some of the world's top Mortal Kombat 11 players are taking action with a weekend tournament to raise funds for change. Kombat Against Injustice will feature a line-up of familiar top players to raise proceeds for the fight to reform law enforcement legislation in America. Read on for more info:

The tournament was announced by Console Gaming League via Twitter, with a bracket of sixteen top competitive players [pictured below]. The battle will be headlined by superstar reigning Evo World Champion and outspoken supporter for several causes: Dominic "Sonic Fox" McClean.

The action will stream live to Twitch on Saturday, June 6th starting at 5:00PM EST, with a $1,000 prize purse provided by Console Gaming League to go to the charity of the Top 4 finalists choosing. Additional donations from the public will go to Campaign Zero: an advocacy group campaigning for data-driven policy solutions to reform policing practises in the United States. Use the promo code Kombat when donating to Kombat Against Injustice and Matcherino will contribute $0.50.

The reported murder of George Floyd while in police custody has been an inciting event for protests in Minneapolis -- where the May 25th death occurred -- as well as other cities across the United States, and around the world. The outpouring of support has been in response to an alarming rate of African-American deaths in police custody. Floyd was suspected of the non-violent crime of passing a counterfeit $20 bill.

Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon has been one of the celebrity voices lending his support to the social movement. On May 30th he tweeted three words across three lines: 'Black. Lives. Matter.' He joined a chorus of acknowledgment that also included another long time Chicago resident: Barack Obama.

The Mortal Kombat franchise has a long history of attracting a diverse global fanbase, with strong representation for African-American players found throughout the top competitive ranks. Few have been as dominant or recognized as Sonic Fox, who also raised over $20,000 last year for the prevention of suicide in the LGBTQI community.
