HOW WE ENGAGE

Experiential learning is a powerful tool to empower the sports community to eliminate racial discrimination, champion social justice and improve race relations.

We created the Champions of Change experience as a tool to extend our work to sports fans across the nation, believing that every individual has the power to help create a more equitable and socially just world.

Champions of Change takes fans on a multi-sensory journey designed to educate, evoke empathy and inspire action. Whether learning about the intersection of sport and society through our interactive timeline, hearing personal stories of athlete experiences with racism or articulating your own commitment to racial equity and social justice, this fan experience inspires the Champion of Change in each of us.
