Special Donation: #WeGotKap
On September 21, 2017, The Daniel Initiative will be co-sponsoring an event at the Congressional Black Caucus Conference entitled "Athletes & Activism". When we look at the blackballing of Colin Kaepernick, the truth is that we have been here before. When Muhammed Ali stood in opposition to the Vietnam War as a conscientious objector, it temporarily cost him his career, yet voices in the community stood with him proudly declaring "we got you". It has been a year since Colin Kaepernick courageously took the knee to speak out against injustices he noticed in society. And once again the voices in the community must rise to declare: "we got you". At the end of this event, The Daniel Initiative intends to present Colin Kaepernick's Foundation, Know Your Rights Camp, with a check to help further their important work. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. In the spirit of financial integrity, please know that ALL monies collected will be presented to Colin Kaepernick at the event.
*NOTE: Individuals donating $200+ will be recognized as Host Committee Members at the event and reception. Organizations donating $500+ will be recognized as sponsors of the event. For more details please e-mail Breon Wells: Breon.Wells@thedanielinitiative.com
