LeBron James Teams with Coach for More Than A Vote
LeBron James and Coach announced its partnership with More Than A Vote, a new voting rights organization led by James and a coalition of Black athletes and entertainers aimed at combating voter suppression and misinformation that disproportionately disenfranchises communities of color.
“And…everyone welcome this game changer (on and off the field) @PatrickMahomes to the family. Means a lot my Brother to have your voice in this with us. #MoreThanAVote#BlackLivesMatter,” James wrote via his Twitter account.
Other pro athletes have joined James including Patrick Mahomes, Andrew Hawkins, Jeffrey Okudah, Caron Butler, Arike Ogunbowale, Sloane Stephens, Jason Heyward and Jozy Altidore, according to NBC Sports.
Coach says they’re committed to mobilizing the full resources of the brand—from employees and collaborators to its network of stores—to help amplify MTAV’s mission to energize, educate and protect voters in U.S. cities where voter suppression and misinformation are rampant.
“Coach is setting the pace by stepping up to the plate as a founding partner with More Than A Vote in the fight against voter suppression,” Addisu Demissie, executive director of More Than A Vote said. “Our power lies in the strength of our collective voices. We’re incredibly grateful to have Coach’s voice from day one.”
