Commitment to Justice and Philanthropy

  • Sean Bell, who was killed in a 2006 police shooting. This was the first case that Roc Nation took on. Jay-Z established a college education fund for Bell’s children
  • Montavious Smith, a Black man who was arrested at a Memphis shopping mall. Police claimed that Smith was wearing a hoodie, which was a violation of the mall’s dress code. When Team Roc took up the case, they discovered that the mall had a longstanding practice of discriminating against Black people via its dress code policy. Perez and her team got the mall to drop the policy, which led police to drop the charges
  • Perez worked with families in the legal aid system to sue over inhumane living conditions on behalf of 150 incarcerated people at the Mississippi State Penitentiary
