#MoreThanAnAthlete: The Racial Justice Leadership of Cal's Student-Athletes

Thursday, October 22, 2020 | 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.

Co-sponsored by the Athletic Study Center and Berkeley’s Cameron Institute for Student-Athlete Development.

In this very special presentation, hear from three of our student athlete leaders about their lived experiences at Cal and in the world, why they chose to speak out and take action on racial justice, and what they would like our advising and student services community to know. All three of our panelists helped create The Change Starts Now

Cal Athletics supports a number of initiatives focused on voter registration and education ahead of the November presidential election and the Cameron Institute has supported student athlete activism on racial justice. Just a few examples of our student athletes’ civic engagement include:


  • Dr. Kasra Sotudeh, Academic & Curriculum Development Coordinator in the Athletic Study Center

  • Dr. Sean Hendricks, Assistant Athletic Director of Leadership and Personal Development at the Cameron Institute for Student-Athlete Development
