ATLANTA (May 31, 2020) — The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Executive Committee and WBCA Executive Director Danielle M. Donehew have jointly issued the following statement today regarding racism:
“The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association is a diverse community of coaches and student-athletes. We do not condone racism. The senseless killings of George Floyd and others prove our country still has a long way to go. Let’s all work together to be more understanding, empathetic and find solutions. We stand in solidarity with our black coaches and student-athletes and will use our platform to help make a difference.”
