More than one month: With Black History Month t-shirt, Ebobisse setting larger goals

SAN JOSÉ, Costa Rica -- “My big message to her, among other things, is that whatever we did, I wanted it to be a consistent thing.”

We sat down to talk about a t-shirt, but from the moment he drew his chair closer to mine – around the corner of a low table near in the middle of the Portland Timbers’ Costa Rica hotel – Jeremy Ebobisse is speaking to a larger vision. it goes far beyond a t-shirt.

He had been working with the Timbers’ Vice President of Community Impact, Kristel Wissel, since long before February 1, trying to come up with a plan for the month.
