Statement from the New York Liberty

4 days. #JacobBlake 
94 days. #GeorgeFloyd
167 days. #BreonnaTaylor
186 days. #AhmaudArbery

1,103 days since the New York Liberty’s first annual UNITY Day game dedicated to social justice.

As the injustices persist, so does the work.

Today marks what should have been the Liberty’s 4th annual UNITY Day game which is devoted to telling Breonna Taylor’s story and highlighting the #SayHerName campaign. In light of today’s protest, our UNITY Day will be rescheduled at a later date. While we will not take the court today, we will continue to stay loud in our pursuit of justice.

The New York Liberty organization stand in solidarity with our players and demand justice for #JacobBlake, #GeorgeFloyd, #BreonnaTaylor, #AhmaudArbery, and the many human lives affected by brutal police encounters. We will not be silenced.

All lives can’t matter until Black lives matter.

We will continue to use our platform to amplify the voices of the silenced in the fight for justice and equality. Fight with us. Register to vote today.
