    The NFL is launching a social justice platform, with an emphasis on education, economic development and community and police relations.

    The platform is called Inspire Change and includes the funding of grass-roots organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and Operation HOPE. It also will establish a digital learning curriculum for African-American history in 175 underserved high schools.

    The league announced the initiative Friday in connection with its 32 teams and the Players Coalition, a group of players that works for social justice.

    Inspire Change is the latest step for the league and the players after they established a working relationship in October 2017 following player demonstrations for social justice during the national anthem — a topic that drew attention from the White House.

    “This launch involves new grants, new African-American history education programs in schools, grants with organizations we have not worked with before and who are doing the work on the ground, and PSAs on broadcasts beginning with this weekend’s playoff games,” says Anna Isaacson, the NFL’s senior vice president of social responsibility.
