FPU Students Create Athletes of Color Alliance

On October 2, the FPU Department of Athletics announced the creation of the Athletes of Color Alliance as a university-sponsored and student-led organization with official club status as of September 2020. The club's primary goal is to collaborate on issues on social justice within the campus and surrounding communities while providing a safe space for student-athletes of all racial backgrounds.

 

"The Athletes of Color Alliance came together because we wanted to give people the space they deserve to speak on what is going on in the world," club president D.J. Maxwell said. "As someone who wants to be a catalyst for change, I believe we have to create a course of action. This is a necessary organization to provide the athletes of color at Fresno Pacific University with a larger, communal platform to speak on issues of racial injustice."
