As an organization, the Seahawks have responded strongly over the last several weeks following the murder of George Floyd and protests against racial injustice across the country.
Seattle issued a statement condemning Floyd’s murder and pledged $500,000 in grants from the Seahawks Players Equality & Justice for All Action Fund.
Pete Carroll issued his own statement, titled “Where Do We Go From Here,” calling for empathy within our communities.
Privately and publicly, the team has taken action. Over the weekend, the wives of two former and current Seahawks helped to create further public action. Tiffany Chancellor and Nathalie Wright, the wives of Kam Chancellor and K.J. Wright, organized the Bridge to the Future March. In honor of the Black Lives Matter movement, participants in the march went across the I-90 Bridge.
Carroll, who along with John Schneider participated in the march, delivered a message via the Seahawks’ social media team.
So too did the organizers, Tiffany Chancellor and Nathalie Wright. We’ll let their words, on the power of their voices and the movement, close us out.
