SOCIAL JUSTICE

The NFL family, in partnership with players, clubs, owners, and the Players Coalition, works to create positive change in communities across the country and ensure that equal opportunity becomes a reality for all.

It's never been more important for us to turn passion into action. We have to continue bridging the gap between player and community.
