Leaders from major Arizona sports teams discussed in a panel Tuesday how they are backing and joining players as they call for social justice and protest police brutality.
“There may be some people that don’t agree with some of the things that sports is standing up for, but it’s time. It’s time for change,” Arizona Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill said during a panel Tuesday.
Bidwill joined other top executives from major sports teams in Arizona to discuss activism in sports and how teams can enact social change. The panel discussion dubbed “One Team” was hosted by the HeroZona Foundation.
“It’s time for people not of color to stand up and talk about this and talk openly about this and lead on this,” he said. “That’s what is needed, and our players have said they want us to lead.”
