Date

04/03/2015 00:00

Location

Louisville, United States|04.04.2015

The forum is designed to advance education, advocacy and research on the role and contribution of athletes toward social change, human rights and development.

We welcome practitioners, scholars, policymakers, athletes and advocates who are working to advance the realm of athletes and social change through the six core values of Muhammad Ali: respect, confidence, conviction, dedication, spirituality and giving.

The forum will focus on the following considerations:

  • The roles and responsibilities athletes have beyond the playing field
  • The ways athletes can serve as educators and advocates to address social problems within and outside of sports
  • How the global sporting community encourages or discourages athletes working in the realm of social change
  • The roles educational institutions play in providing grounding for athletes to make the connections between athletics, academics and the community
  • The role and impact of media in how athletes can affect social change
  • The intersection and convergence of athletes, sports and politics

To attend the forum, please register here. Registration fee for the conference is $100 for professionals and $50 for students.

Please contact Marcel Parent via mparent@alicenter.org or Eli Wolff via eli_wolff@brown.edu with any questions.
