2020 Season-Long Award Community Assist Award: WNBA Players ®
September, 18 2020
As part of the dedication of the 2020 WNBA season to social justice, the league and State Farm have named all WNBA players as the recipients of the 2020 season-long WNBA Community Assist Award presented by State Farm® for their continued commitment, leadership and collaborative efforts to promote racial equality and systemic change.
The WNBA Cares Community Assist Award presented by State Farm, which was previously awarded to one player each month of the season, traditionally recognizes an individual who best reflects the WNBA’s passion for making a difference in the community. This year, the WNBA and State Farm present the season-long award to all players in recognition of their collective passion and dedication to social justice.
“Through the years and especially this season, WNBA players have worked together tirelessly to combat social injustice and racial inequality, and this award is a testament to each and every player’s dedication to advocating for change,” said Head of WNBA League Operations Bethany Donaphin. “WNBA players have used their platforms and voices to inspire real action, and our support for them is unwavering.”
