The only thing greater than sport is the spirit that rises from it.

Home

We are a national nonprofit that educates and empowers the sports community to eliminate racial discrimination, champion social justice and improve race relations.

Through partnerships and programs, we inspire leaders in sports to create positive change on matters of race and equality.

Educate

We work with athletes, coaches and administrators at every level to equip them with the knowledge and tools to address matters of racism, prejudice, diversity and inclusion.

Our leadership programs build skills and create safe spaces to have difficult conversations. We cover topics such as identity, implicit bias, racial ideology and athlete activism and teach perspective taking, empathy, and conflict resolution.

Empower
