Equality and Inclusion Night is a nationwide campaign designed to use our college basketball platform to keep equality in the national conversation.
For a single game this year - between Feb 10-22, 2022 - we are asking all teams in men’s and women’s basketball to participate in Equality and Inclusion night. We are asking coaches to wear all black on the sidelines and wear the “equal sign” pin we have created to symbolize equality.
Let’s unite to let the world know that college basketball will stand up for Equality and Inclusion.
