This is the 2nd season Colin Kaepernick has been banned from the NFL since taking his knee and protesting police brutality in the United States.
Last season we called for a #NoKaepernickNoNFL ban.
This season — to put the “distorted” message back on track — we say #WhyWeKneel.
WE PARTNERED UP WITH THE LAWYERS COMMITTEE FOR CIVIL RIGHTS UNDER LAW, which produced 11 graphics you can share on social media, email, etc. that shows FACTS on why we ALL took a knee in support of Colin Kaepernick. If you don’t understand this, then picture if this was your son, daughter, brother, sister, parent, guardian, or any of your loved ones. Will it make sense then?
PLEASE SHARE THESE USING THE HASHTAG #WhyWeKneel DURING WEEK 1 OF THIS NFL SEASON. Here’s the schedule:
- Thursday (today), 9/6 – 8:00 pm
- Sunday 9/9 – 1:00 pm (early games), 4:25 pm (afternoon games), 8:20 pm (night game)
- Monday 9/10 – 7:10 pm (early Monday Night Football), 10:15 pm (late Monday Night Football)
