Introducing UNITE: Action Over Words
This is a moment for action, not just commitment.
In recent weeks and months, Jordan Brand and Nike, Inc. have shared statements and plans that articulate actions we’re taking for the Black community. Today, we share a new UNITE manifesto that further defines our vision, featuring Jordan Brand family, friends and employees.
We are also announcing Real Talk, a new content series produced by Jordan Brand, dedicated to helping people better understand how racism still affects the Black Community today. Real Talk will be hosted by social commentator and political analyst Angela Rye, and will feature a range of voices, including Jordan Brand athletes and influencers, journalists, social justice experts and community activists. Real Talk launches early October on YouTube.
Learn more here and read the new manifesto below.
Jordan Brand is us, the Black Community. Bigger than one man, whose will and work redefined the meaning of greatness. Bigger than the basketball court, where generations of dreams have taken flight. Bigger than any struggle, any obstacle, any fight.
Like our namesake, Jordan Brand represents the strength and perseverance of those who came before us. The will, the work, the excellence we have all come to know is the result of one generation after another, pouring their dreams into the next. Our past teaches us that no matter the obstacles, no matter the struggle, we can shape a better future.
Jordan Brand is a family that dares to dream big, and works to overcome all. We’re no stranger to achieving the impossible. Like MJ, we know that what may be impossible alone, is possible together.
Jordan Brand is us, the Black Community. The fight for equal opportunity and equal justice is ours.
As long as this struggle continues, we’ll match commitment with action. We’ll amplify the voices demanding change. We’ll partner to ensure social and economic justice prevails. And we’ll educate and affirm so allies can join us in the fight. We’ll unite as one family, united by the belief that lasting change will finally come.
Action over words. Dreams over destiny. Community over everything.
