Last year saw the soccer community raise its voice in protest of systemic racism and rampant injustice in the world, with organizations like Black Players for Change and the USL Black Players Alliance organizing. In this panel, members of those and other organizations will discuss the role the beautiful game can play in bringing equality to our society and making sure future players of color are seen as equals on and off the field of play.
