Creating Change Through The Social Justice Action Committee [VIDEO]

Three students protesting for Black Lives Matter.

“We can’t let fighting for change become a fad, because it’s not a fad, it’s something that needs to happen,” says Ayanna Johnson, a junior women’s basketball player and Social Justice Action Committee member. The committee is a student-led, university-wide umbrella initiative for projects and programming that promote diversity and inclusion through sport on American college campuses. This initiative uses sport as a lens to address topics such as gender equality, race/ethnicity, religion, nationality/citizenship, LGBTQ issues, (dis)ability, mental health and stereotypes.
