New York Jets Take Big Step for Social Justice
The New York Jets are donating $250,000 to four separate organizations: Year Up; the New York Urban League, the Innocence Project, and the All Stars Project’s Operation Conversation: Cops & Kids. This initiative has been carefully planned over the last six months by the Jets’ Social Justice, Diversity and Inclusion Team. The Jets also don’t simply want to make a statement by sending donations out, but want to get involved, commit money as well as manpower and volunteer hours, and contribute to effective and positive change.
We encourage you to give generously to allow us to work to make meaningful change and to support the many organizations that are doing terrific work in this space. Please click below to make your donation
