Our Dream: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day

The Play Equity Movement honors the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who believed that children regardless of race, gender, or background should be afforded equal opportunities. He challenged the next generation of youth to be prepared to take on the new opportunities that arrived. The Play Equity Movement – which includes the Play Equity Fund, the LA84 Foundation, partners, grantees and friends united in building access for all children to experience the transformative power of sports and play – continues to push these ideals forward as a social justice issue. These values are cornerstone of our movement. Dr. King said to young people, “Doors of opportunity are opening to each of you that were not open to your mothers and to your fathers, and the great challenge facing you is to be ready to enter these doors as they open.”

2020 In Review: A Year We Will Never Forget

As we look back on 2020, it has been a year of challenges and reflection. The year kicked off with such promise as it ushered in a new decade. Over the 12 months of 2020 our lives were upended by a global pandemic, and while we have lost family, friends, and colleagues, we have also learned and emerged stronger than we were previously. In 2020, at the Play Equity Fund we worked to adapt and support and our partners effectively. We also found new partners and allies to respond to the pandemic, to join the Play Equity Movement and work toward racial justice. We have learned that while we may not know what is coming, there is strength in working collectively and we can always overcome challenges when we partner together.
