NBA All-Stars Launch Fund Supporting Black Community

With the NBA season back in full swing, NBA players continue to lead the way for social justice. 

Trail Blazers star Carmelo Anthony, OKC Thunder point guard Chris Paul and former All-Star Dwyane Wade have launched the Social Change Fund, aiming to invest in Black communities with criminal justice reform, access to voting and civic engagement.

The Social Change Fund will help “empower communities of color by expanding and increasing Black representation in leadership, and building economic equity for Black people through investments in education, employment, and housing,” according to a statement announcing the fund.

“I stand for everything this Fund and its beneficiaries support and will not stop pushing for progress until we see an end to the systemic racism that the Black community has faced for too long. We will not lose focus,” Carmelo Anthony said in a statement published on the Funds’ website.

Miami Heat Legend Dwyane Wade added that he’s “committed to supporting organizations that directly represent and benefit the Black community.”

“Our goal is to create a pathway for inclusion and success by deploying the necessary funds and resources to invest in long-term change,” Wade went on to say.

The NBA trio will sit on the “Founders Council,” where they’ll determine Fund priorities, elect beneficiaries, and manage relationships with donors and partners.

There was a lot of talk a month ago about whether the NBA returning would distract us from the movement. The NBA is showing why athlete activism has and will always play a significant role in the fight for social justice and equality.
