The Milwaukee Bucks and Sacramento Kings are adding teammates from the NBA and WNBA for their upcoming third installment of “Team Up for Change,” a source told The Undefeated.
The Bucks and Kings have collaborated the past two years for “Team Up for Change,” an all-day summit that aims to unite around a shared commitment and call for racial equality and social justice.
Next month, the Minnesota Timberwolves, Minnesota Lynx, Indiana Pacers, Indiana Fever, Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Wings and Cleveland Cavaliers will join the Bucks and Kings in the program, a source told The Undefeated. The expanded multiday summit will begin with a virtual event on Oct. 21, followed by a week of action featuring community events in team markets and a nine-part content series on team digital channels.

ANALYSIS: The more, the merrier. The NBA and WNBA have been strong in publicly using their voices and platform to speak out against the racism and social injustices happening across the country. Adding more organizations to this program will help spread even more awareness and bring light to these issues.
