Dr. King lent his voice to a movement at a time when equality for all was simply a dream. Decades later, we continue to strive for total equality and look to community leaders to lend their voices, time and action to help those who struggle with adversity, poverty, oppression and any type of unfair treatment.
With so many great former NFL players doing charitable work in their communities, we encourage all former players to meet up with their local NFLPA Chapters, get involved with or start an effort in their community and to let us know so we can lend our voice to highlight your great work in our “Paying it Forward” series in 2017.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
