The 4th Annual Muhammad Ali Center Athletes and Social Change Forum will be hosted by Eli Wolff, in partnership with University of Louisville, Brown University, and Athlete Ally, and takes place on April 8th & 9th . This year’s theme will be “Creating a Declaration for Human Rights in Sports.”
The goal of this year’s forum is to bring together thought leaders from diverse areas of sports advocacy for a think tank on the potential scope, impact, and framing of a Declaration for Human Rights in Sports, outline the rights of every athlete, as well as define the responsibilities of global sports communities to provide their athletes equality of access, opportunity, and experience.
The Forum will be organized as an online web-ex conference. Participants will be able to join the conference here for Friday April 8th and here for April 9th. The Forum agenda and schedule will be posted by early March. Registrants will receive detailed web-ex instructions prior to the conference.
