Rise Up for Justice: Activist Athletes Elect Justice

Host Organization: Othering & Belonging Institute, Athletes for Impact, Elect Justice, and Vote.org


On Thursday, August 27 we will explore the role of activist athletes and the struggle for social and racial justice. From Paul Robeson to Althea Gibson, from Muhammad Ali to Maya Moore, from Colin Kaepernick to Megan Rapinoe, athletes have cast their lot with oppressed peoples and have spoken out for justice. Today, athletes are still organizing and speaking out for Black lives, LGBTQ rights, women’s rights, democratic rights, Native sovereignty, and immigrant rights. This is a panel of athletes who have stepped up and knelt down.

This event is being organized by the Othering & Belonging Institute at UC Berkeley in collaboration with Athletes for Impact, Elect Justice, and Vote.org.
