Who WE Are

Athletes for Change encompasses all BIPOC student-athlete-led groups at universities across Canada. Our purpose is to connect all groups across Canada, and help to promote social equity, as well as educate others about Black, Biracial, and Indigenous culture in a positive way through the platform of sports. This group will allow for all members to network and utilize each other's resources and platforms to promote their messages and improve their reach in their respective communities. All members are an official club at one of the 56 USports affiliated post-secondary institutions.

“I know that I’m doing something right, I know other people see what I’m doing is right. It’s something that we have to come together, we have to unite, we have to unify and make a change.”
