NCAA President Mark Emmert statement on race and social justice

The events in Kenosha once again lay bare a tragic outcome resulting from police interaction with a person of color. It has also once again brought to the forefront the issues of race, social justice and social responsibility that we all need to commit to. Peaceful protest is a powerful tool to drive social change and we fully support student-athletes’ rights to be heard. Action also drives change and we urge all student-athletes to exercise their right and responsibility to vote this November 3 to build a better and more inclusive America.  

- Mark Emmert, NCAA president
