After Zack Snyder’s daughter’s demise, there has been a flood of suicide prevention campaigns on social media. Jason Momoa also took the social responsibility to aware people around him by this tribute. He shared a photograph from “Aquaman” with #UsUnited written on top of the picture.

He also said that they have created a tribute site for Zack Snyder’s daughter, Autumn. They have tried to address issues like mental health, suicide awareness, and prevention.
“We’ve created this official tribute site, as many continue to be inspired by Autumn, offering their support to the important work of this foundation. Today, more than ever, recognizing and destigmatizing conversations surrounding mental health, suicide awareness and prevention is crucial. We are honored by the amazing way Autumn’s legacy has inspired so many to dedicate their efforts and resources to helping others when they need it most.”
“With deepest thanks and gratitude,
The Snyder Family”
Zack Synder’s daughter Autumn died in March 2017 at the age of 20. He along with his wife, Deborah Snyder took a break from the “Justice League” movie. The Hollywood Reporter reported that the family wanted to keep the matter private. “I thought it would just be in the family, a private matter, our private sorrow that we would deal with. When it became obvious that I need to take a break, I knew there would be narratives created on the internet. They’ll do what they do. The truth is … I’m past caring about that kind of thing now.”
Not only Jason Momoa took a stand for Zack Snyder’s daughter but he also urged his fans to raise money for the fund. Zack and Deborah have a goal of raising $50,000 for the Autumn Tribute Fund which will help the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention according to Cinemablend.
This wouldn’t be the first time that Momoa is taking a stand for a social cause. The actor recently revealed to InStyle that he is going to therapy to explore more male vulnerability to help him be a better father and a better example to his son.
