Indianapolis Colts Breaking Barriers Social Justice Initiative

It Takes All Of Us

Our stories. Our voices. Our choice: Black Lives Matter

Colts players and staff share their stories of racial discrimination and injustice and look to the future of the country in this moment of change.

The entire Colts organization believes we must foster this dialogue and do what we can to inspire positive change throughout our city, state and country.

Learn more about the Breaking Barriers initiative to support organizations and efforts that battle systemic racism and reduce barriers to opportunity with a focus on racial equity, economic and educational mobility, community/police relations, voter education and criminal justice reform at Colts.com/BreakingBarriers.

Social Injustice

_The #Breaking Barriers initiative supports organizations and efforts that battle systemic racism and reduce barriers to opportunity with a focus on racial equity, economic and educational mobility, community/police relations, voter education and criminal justice reform. As an Indiana business, as a responsible corporate citizen – and as people who truly care about our fellow Hoosiers – the Indianapolis Colts believe we must foster this dialogue and do what we can to inspire positive change throughout our city, state and country._

The #BreakingBarriers initiative will include three components:

Fostering community dialogue. Throughout the year, Colts players, coaches and staff continue to host, take part in and support events that bring people together to discuss important community issues.

Inspiring community members. Throughout the year, the Colts will host and take part in activities that inspire Hoosiers to work toward the important goals of the effort.

Funding community initiatives. The Irsay family and Colts players joined together to form the Players' Action Fund in 2017 to support local nonprofits working in these important areas. The Colts will match contributions to this fund from current and former players up to $250,000. Colts players and staff collaboratively determine the process, timeline and guidelines for the funds. Aside from this fund, the Irsay family also independently supports numerous nonprofits in Indiana that are dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion.
