Las Vegas (KLAS) — Athletes and nonprofits work together to raise awareness of social justice.
Former NBA player Stephen Jackson hosted a community food donation event on Sunday morning.
The campaign travels across the country, not only packing and serving weeks of food bags, but also working to discuss issues such as food insecurity and racial justice.
“I keep showing to others, become the face of all athletes, the face of equality, and it doesn’t mean that you need to hate the next race, not just when you’re proud of being black. I want to show people that, “Jackson said. “Being proud of being black means that you can’t stop, everyone can love you, but you can still fight, do whatever you have to do, and everyone you have your goals. It means you can’t stop achieving and achieving your dreams. “
The group says it will provide about 1,200 families with boxes of fresh fruit, vegetables and pantry items at each stop.
