“There’s no doubt that Colin Kaepernick is the face of the new civil rights movement. By first sitting and then kneeling last season, he drew attention to the oppression of black people and people of color in the U.S. As a result of that , he risked his career and is now an unemployed quarterback. At a rally that is scheduled for Wednesday at NFL headquarters in New York City, others will stand up for him.

Organizers of the “United We Stand Rally for Colin Kaepernick”, a joint effort of many civil rights organizations and activists hope to apply pressure to top decision‑makers in the league that has shut out his career after his peaceful and impactful political protest. They will do that to help Kaepernick get back in the game, and become game‑changers.”
