The WNBA is following the NBA’s lead as the association decides to incorporate social justice efforts into the return of its 2020 season.
As players head to Bradenton, Florida in a few weeks, teams will wear special uniforms to call for the justice of Breonna Taylor’s death by Louisville, Kentucky police officers and Vanessa Guillen, a soldier whose remains were found near her Fort Hood army base.
Players will also wear warm up jerseys that display messages like “Black Lives Matter” on the front and “Say Her Name” on the back. Black Lives Matter will also be displayed on the courts during games.
The season will be played without fans due to the pandemic.
