College Athlete Unity is a member organization of intercollegiate athletes seeking to collectively address injustice and affect positive change using our privilege and considerable platforms. Our members represent 23 different varsity sports, attending schools in every major conference, across every NCAA division, the NAIA, and U Sport (Canada).
We are collegiate student-athletes who have been afforded a tremendous opportunity to represent our respective schools in athletic competition. We are privileged to have the platform that we do. We fight to win every time we compete. Now it's time to fight for the change we know needs to happen at our schools, in our communities, and in our country.
Racial and other injustices have plagued our nation for centuries. Enough is enough. It's time for us to come together to call out injustice, voice our concerns, and make change happen. Power is rarely relinquished without a fight. As athletes, it's in our nature to fight and win.
College Athlete Unity is building a network of student-athletes to share information, communicate universal concerns, and promote our common interests. We'll post information for our fans, followers, and friends so you know how you can get involved and support us.
