All facets of the NBA family have joined forces to launch NBA Together – a global community and social engagement campaign that aims to support, engage, educate and inspire youth, families, and fans in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Through its four pillars – Know the Facts, Acts of Caring, #NBATogetherLive and Expand Your Community – NBA Together will share the latest health and safety information and use digital tools and virtual events to help keep communities connected during this time of social distancing.
Public health data has made clear that the impacts of the coronavirus are most concentrated in historically marginalized communities of color. As part of NBA Together, the NBA family is working with leading organizations like the National Urban League, UnidosUS, and more to raise awareness about the root causes of these disparities and promote health, economic and social equity.
#ActsofCaring aims to harness the reach of the NBA and its partners to galvanize support for those most impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19. Through this portal, we help match volunteers to causes and amplify the good!
The NBA encourages everyone to expand our communities and utilize these educational, health and wellness and youth basketball virtual activities and resources to stay connected and keep learning fun.
This includes the launch of Jr. NBA at Home, an interactive content series for young people who are currently unable to play with their friends and teammates. Check out the video hub below and follow the Jr. NBA on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram:
