College Athlete

Advocacy Initiative

Our Mission

The mission of the College Athlete Advocacy Initiativeā„¢ is to (1) coordinate legal services for college athletes on NCAA-related matters and (2) launch advocacy campaigns to combat inequality and exploitation of athletes in the multibillion-dollar college sports industry. We unite passionate advocates with current and former athletes and influential figures to fight for fundamental fairness and meaningful reform in college sports.

Our Approach

Legal Support

Our network of lawyers and advocates provide legal and advisory services to college athletes affected by NCAA rules and related issues. Our team advises athletes on eligibility issues, athletic scholarship cancellations, health and safety concerns, abuse and mistreatment, transfer matters, and more. Our attorneys and experts also consider strategic legal initiatives in pursuit of fairness for college athletes.

Advocacy Campaigns

We will work with our network of influential supporters to launch and coordinate advocacy campaigns, demonstrations, petitions, PSAs, and events to raise awareness of critical issues facing college athletes and pressure the system for meaningful reform. Knowledgeable and passionate advocates will combine forces with athletes and influential figures to engage in strategic advocacy campaigns designed to inform the public, address inequities, and inspire reform. We will support, guide, and empower college athletes to utilize their platform and push back against inequality and exploitation.
