The National Basketball Player’s Association (NBPA) released a video of Jayson Tatum talking about how he uses his platform for good on Thursday, August 26, 2021. Not just any day, it was the one-year anniversary of a work stoppage in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake by Minnesota police.

It was no minor affair, either, but saw the NBA, WNBA and Major League Baseball all shut down their scheduled games as players used their platform to draw attention to an incident they could not stand by and ignore. On the anniversary of that powerful event, Tatum shared his thoughts on how he can use sports for positive change in the clip.

Watch the video embedded below to hear what the ST. Louis native had to say about how he sees using his platform as an athlete as a tool to make the world a better place.
