This talk explores the two separate America's experienced by Blacks & Whites in college sports.
Emmett L. Gill, Jr., PhD, MSW, LMSW is the interim AASJS Chief Visionary Officer. Dr. Gill has been an activist and advocate for social justice in college and professional sports for over two decades and has worked for two Division One athletic departments and on mental health initiatives for the NFL and NBA.
AASJS was created in June 2020 as a result of athletes international response to racial unrest. However, AASJS is the reincarnation of the Student-Athletes Human Rights Project (SAHRP) a former 501(c)3 that advocated for the rights of college athletes at UNC, Rutgers, Colorado State, Wisconsin and more.
Rawls defines social justice as "fairness". We focus on social justice issues in sports and social issues important to athletes. Our full agenda is under development and we welcome ideas. The initial AASJS agenda will include three college sports and three professional sports agenda items.
Your support and contributions will enable us to pursue social justice for some of the most pressing issues in college and professional sports.
