On the Unacceptability of Bigotry and Hetero-Normativity in Athletics

Kurt WirthCorrespondent INovember 3, 2016

I also hope that many of you not directly affected by what happened join this movement. Many already have. When you see bigotry and hatred, do not stand for it. Be the one who steps in and says something, does something.

Whether it's a call to an athletic department (phone for Ross Bjork, athletic director of Ole Miss: 662-915-7546), speaking up in a crowded auditorium or just a simple discussion with your child, you never know when a little effort can unexpectedly save a life.
