In an endless pursuit of equality and equity, Coaches 4 Change was founded by college coaches from across the United States to provide a platform that engages, educates, empowers, and evolves the young voter on yesterday’s and today’s issues of social injustice, systemic racism, and the power of voting.
Did you know?
That 3 out of 4 neighborhoods that were “redlined” 80 years ago, continue to struggle to this day, despite redlining having been banned?
That in 2019, there were 1,098 people killed by the police? And that Black people made up 24% of those killed, even though Black individuals only make up around 13% of the American population?
That low-income women are evicted at a much higher rate than low-income men? And that low-income Black men and women are evicted at a higher rate than low-income White men and women?
Throughout the past 150 years, more than 30 executive orders have been issued in an attempt to put an end to overt acts of discrimination.

The solution for today’s injustice won’t be simple. There is no panacea to the complex problem that is racism in America.
Rooted in all the things Americans sweep to the side, this problem will likely take many years and many presidents to abolish.
But the change starts with you. The solution starts with you.
Now is not too soon.

The privilege barrier subconsciously prevents non-BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) from being actively anti-racist.
Change starts with education. Without educating ourselves on the history of injustice in America, and today’s problems that were born from those injustices, how do we know what needs to be changed? How do we break down the privilege barrier?
