#StandingforKaepernick


Colin Kaepernick knelt for us, and now we must stand for him!

THE MOVEMENT:

WHAT WE ARE CALLING FOR

1.  PROTESTS at the first regular season game played at every NFL stadium this season.


2.  A total BOYCOTT of anything related to week one of the NFL.


       ... Unless Colin Kaepernick is added to an official NFL roster.


THE PROTESTS (First game at stadium)

We will have a large, vocal, visible presence at all of the first NFL football games played at every NFL stadium this season!

  • These games will take place between September 7th and September 24th 2017.
  • Click your city below to find the specific date, time, and other information related to your city's protest.
  • Plan to arrive at least one hour before game time.
  • You can also use your city's hashtag on Twitter.
  • Plug your NFL city into the following hashtag: #standingforkaepernickCITY (Los Angeles use LARams or LAChargers)
  • The overall hashtag is #standingforkaepernick.


THE BOYCOTT (Week 1)

  • Do not record games to watch later.
  • Do not check scores online.
  • Do not watch any sports shows that may talk about the NFL.

Why?

Colin Kaepernick's peaceful protest of police brutality and other racial injustices has led to him being blackballed by the NFL.


NFL owners have either decided to punish Kaepernick for taking this stand OR that it's best for business to sweep these issues under the rug. Either option is UNACCEPTABLE! 


The issues Colin raised cannot be ignored, and the people he is fighting for will not be taken for granted. 


The NFL will continue to silence and punish players who speak out against oppression unless we make them pay in terms of their image, ratings, and sales.


BY STANDING FOR KAEPERNICK, WE ARE STANDING FOR PLAYERS' ABILITY TO RAISE AWARENESS BY TAKING SMALL STEPS SUCH AS NOT STANDING FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM WITHOUT  LOSING THEIR JOBS. 

Why only one week?

 We are starting with just one week for now because we want to focus on getting the largest number of people possible so we can make the biggest possible impact.


Some people are too busy to commit to anything long term. Some may not be willing to give up the whole season just yet. 


No matter how busy you are or what your relationship with the NFL is, everyone can give up just one day to come together for this extremely important cause!


We can always decide to extend this later, but for now, we are putting all of our focus on this first protest.
