From WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert:
Remembering George Floyd today on the day of his memorial service. Throughout this unprecedented time, we must address the recent killings and acts of racial injustice. The WNBA opposes racism in all its forms and will work to bring measurable and meaningful societal change.
As part of our commitment to make an impact, the WNBA will donate proceeds from the sale of its “Bigger than Ball” women’s empowerment merchandise to groups working against racial inequities.
We will build on this commitment and support WNBA players in the fight against racial inequality. Enough is enough.
