USA Today

Athletes and teams around sports are protesting and boycotting games and practices in the wake of police shooting Jacob Blake in the back seven times.

The Chicago Red Stars released a statement showing support for athletes across the country taking action.

The statement reads:

"We feel hopeful and inspired by the bold statement being made and unity being shown by athletes in this moment. We stand in support of you. In lieu of soccer content, right now we'll be suing our platforms to focus on learning and amplifying to highlight injustice and motivate change."

The Red Stars have a #CRSLearns campaign on social where they highlight materials to educate themselves and their fans.
