Advancement Project stands by NFL players - and all professional athletes - that continue to advocate for change to our country’s unjust policing practices that disparately impact the lives of Black people.
This ongoing campaign has followed Colin Kaepernick's #TakeAKnee protests, in addition to supporting the renaming of Washington's NFL team.
“Compelling players to stand for the national anthem… tells the world that the NFL does not care about racial justice.”
We stand in solidarity with NFL players who #TakeAKnee and join a coalition demanding a meeting with the commissioner to discuss the league’s response to these protests.
Advancement Project is one of last organizations to receive portion of
$1 million donation from former football player, social justice advocate

This two-week suspension is an effort to silence an African American who has a national platform, thousands of followers and a message that challenges the status quo. ESPN should be ashamed.
