Thank Athletes for Taking a Knee and Resisting Trump

Donald Trump has been very understanding of violent racists, but has the ugliest words for African American athletes who nonviolently protest a racist criminal justice system.

Trump's bombast has spurred even more athletes to speak out against racial injustice and against Trump.

We will deliver the petition with your signatures to the players union.

We thank those athletes who have taken a knee to protest racism and injustice, and in defense of freedom of speech and freedom of thought. We thank those who have come to their defense. You have our gratitude.
