Uber stands in solidarity with the Black community and with peaceful protests against the injustice and racism that have plagued our nation for too long. My hope is that if each of us recommits to doing all we can to counter bigotry wherever we see it, change will follow.
We know there is no easy solution to the problems we have faced for centuries. As a starting point, we will use Uber Eats to promote Black-owned restaurants while making it easier for you to support them, with no Delivery Fees for the remainder of the year. Additionally, we’re donating $1M to the Center for Policing Equity and the Equal Justice Initiative to support their important work in making criminal justice in America more just for all.

Uber supporting communities
The world as we know it has changed. But as communities come together in this unprecedented time, one thing is certain: through resourcefulness, compassion, and innovation, we'll get there together. See how Uber is working with communities to move forward during this time.
10 million rides and deliveries
We’re pledging 10 million free rides, meals, and deliveries for frontline healthcare workers, seniors, and people in need around the world.
Helping drivers and delivery people
To support drivers and delivery people during this time, we’ve built an in-app COVID-19 hub with the latest safety tips, resources to help them apply for financial relief, and access to additional earning opportunities through the Work Hub.
“Healthcare workers are fighting for us on the front lines of this battle, and we’ve got their backs. This generous partnership with Uber will help us offer support to the New Yorkers who are seeing us through this crisis.”
—Mayor Bill de Blasio, NYC
Helping our communities around the world
As countries around the world address the COVID-19 crisis head-on, we’re doing our small part to help through our social responsibility commitments. See how we're working with cities and nonprofits to support our communities and heroes on the front lines.
"We're thrilled to be expanding our partnership with Uber to help feed communities when people need it most. During this challenging time, we've worked closely with our large network of food banks and the team at Uber to leverage their existing platform and find new ways to help our neighbors in need."
—Nikki Drevich, Interim Chief Development Officer, Feeding America
Promoting health and safety
Protecting the health and safety of people in our communities is our top priority—from the COVID-19 crisis through recovery.
Supporting public safety
We've developed health and safety tips and are sharing them across our channels with every rider, customer, and earner globally. We’re reminding everyone who uses Uber to follow advice from public health authorities. And we're asking our riders to stay home so we can help move what matters.
Keeping drivers and delivery people safe
The health and safety of drivers and delivery people is always our priority. We’ve compiled safety resources and stood up programs, like providing drivers and delivery people with masks, sanitizers, and wipes, to help them take care of themselves during this uncertain time.
