In February of 2021, USL HQ added the following goal to its list of key organizational objectives: Leverage the USL platform to drive social and community impact and increase representation of diverse populations throughout the USL ecosystem.
United Soccer League and the USL Black Players Alliance (USLBPA) launched the UNITED AGAINST RACISM
commitment, a new organization-wide initiative inclusive of all Black, Indigenous, LatinX, AAPI, people of color, and any other community experiencing racism (BIPOC). The Commitment, created in a collaborative effort, has been crafted to grow, build, and adapt in future years.
The FOREVER PROUD PROJECT
was created to reinforce USL’s commitment to social impact and to provide a SAFE, INCLUSIVE space for all fans, players, coaches and employees.
