BIG EAST Continues Anti-Racism Efforts

NEW YORK – In keeping with the BIG EAST Conference’s commitment to lead, educate and inspire on racial and social justice issues, the Conference’s eleven member schools have unanimously approved the display of Black Lives Matter (BLM) patches on their men’s and women’s basketball uniforms for the 2020-21 season.

The Conference also announced its support for the efforts of Coaches for Action (CFA), a coalition of 21 ethnic minority BIG EAST men’s basketball assistant coaches formed to help raise awareness in the fight against racism and to develop a sustainable action plan to dismantle prejudice, discrimination and oppression in Black, Brown, Indigenous and minoritized communities.
