Colin Kaepernick


Colin has defied expectations his entire life.

In August 2016, Colin began using this platform as an NFL star to courageously bring awareness to social injustice issues, saying he could no longer stay silent while issues of systematic oppression of people of color in America raged across the US. Although Colin hasn't been signed to an NFL team since beginning his protest, he continues to use his voice to inspire others.
