This year, the Blazers’ Black History Month outreach will connect with local organizations that advocate for the Portland Black community.

Along with the Black History Month-themed games, the Blazers organization will host virtual events and fan engagement opportunities with prizes for fans to win and much more.

 

Black History Month is a great opportunity for our organization to continue supporting Black businesses and further the education of the local Black history here in Portland to our fans, employees and partners.

President & CEO of the Trail Blazers and Rose Quarter Chris McGowan said in the team's press release

“We are dedicated to continuing our efforts to support the Black community for Black History Month and every month that follows.” For more information around the Celebration of Black History game and for more on how the Trail Blazers are honoring Black History Month, visit trailblazers.com/BHM.
