The California Golden Bears have announced a plan to continue their educational campaign on social injustices, among many other important topics happening in the country today.
In the spirit of continuing the conversation from our players' joint statement last month (see pinned tweet on our page), we will be launching an #EducateToMotivate campaign on July 20th. Read more below.⬇️ #Willing pic.twitter.com/p9GDegdZe3— Cal Basketball (@CalWBBall) July 13, 2020
Joining forces, the men’s and women’s basketball teams are seeking to continue discussions on the Black Lives Matter movement as well as many other topics.
Starting on July 20, they’re launching Educate to Motivate: A social justice educational series. Each topic will consist of four sections including educate, community, support and activate.
The statement issued also says their first topic on July 20 will be on voting.
It also calls on their previous joint statement, issued back on June 2.
