“The number-one thing we want to do is impact,” (NFL Commissioner) Roger Goodell added. “That we can have an impact together and we can do some really positive things in our community. We listened to our players. We understood what our players were saying, and we created a platform which can help drive change that Colin had raised and the players had raised.
“This partnership, in addition to bringing the entertainment aspect to it with bringing football and music together, is going to help us make even greater change. We call it to protest to progress.”
In addition to helping the league curate musical acts for events like the Super Bowl halftime show or the Pro Bowl, Roc Nation will funnel the proceeds from many of these events back into grants and charities were chosen by artists selected to perform, via the NFL’s “Inspire Change” platform.
