Members of the Kentucky Women’s Basketball Team are using their platform to stand up for what they believe in.

On Wednesday, Sept. 18, the UK Hoops team will host a Social Justice March and Unity Fair on Kentucky’s campus in order to raise awareness regarding police brutality, mental health conversations, the importance of voting, and many other important social issues.

The march will start at 11:00 a.m. outside the William T. Young Library and finish up at the Bowman Statue, located right across the street from Memorial Coliseum, around 11:20. The Unity Fair will follow immediately after, running until 4:00 p.m.

“University of Kentucky WBB players want to bring awareness to police brutality, inform our peers on how these issues after the black community, encourage our peers to exercise their right to vote, demand justice for injustices, provide mental health information and resources and spread love through these tough times.” read the statement from the Kentucky Women’s Basketball Twitter account.

Masks are required for the event and 6-foot social distancing is encouraged. You can easily sign up to attend by clicking the link here.

      And that’s about how quickly your comment will be deleted. Zack doesn’t allow opposing viewpoints.

      Yeah, I think this article originally had many more comments; what happened, they just delete them? What are they afraid of…free speech, free exchange of opinions?
      I may not agree with a comment; I may think a comment is illogical; I may think a comment is juvenile or crude (like the comment below) but I hate to see censorship.
      Obvious that the staff was never on a college debate team; you can’t just tell the other team to shut up and…..
      Tiresome.

      Yes, several got deleted. I remember a few years ago someone was posting vile, vile comments one night. I won’t get specific, but it was about doing illegal behavior with kids. The next day a caller made Matt aware of it on the air and Matt said they didn’t have time to monitor the comment section.
