Kevin Livingston, president of nonprofit organization 100 Suits for 100 Men, will organize a demonstration showing support for free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick Wednesday at NFL headquarters in New York City, ESPN.com's Michael Rothstein reported.  

According to the organization's website, 100 Suits for 100 Men looks to provide help to men and women who have recently been paroled. Kaepernick recently volunteered with the group:

"Our core service is to provide free business attire to men and women who are in the job search process," 100 Suits for 100 Men wrote on its site.

Know Your Rights Camp, a social awareness campaign started by Kaepernick, posted a photo of the former San Francisco 49ers star standing outside a New York City parole office handing out suits earlier in the month:

The 29-year-old has yet to sign with a team after leaving the Bay Area. The San Jose Mercury NewsTim Kawakami and Washington Post's Kevin Blackistone argued NFL teams have essentially blackballed Kaepernick as a result of his social activism.

The MMQB's Albert Breer tweeted teams aren't targeting Kaepernick because they don't see him as a potential starter anymore—a case Kawakami countered grows increasingly thin given the transactions this offseason:

Kaepernick's adviser, Harry Edwards, told USA Today's Jarrett Bell that three teams had inquired about Kaepernick after the free-agency period began March 9. Yet, the six-year veteran is no closer to finding a new home.
