UNITE – Equity, Justice, Love

Stanford Athletics fully supports its student-athletes, coaches, and staff continung to use their voices and platforms to create change and is committed to doing its part to make the world a better place. In the face of injustice, inequality, and hatred, we must unite in the fight for equity, justice and love.

Representation in the campaign will vary by sports, with the football, student-athletes, and coaches choosing to display the UNITE emblem on their helmets and on the sidelines, in tandem with the pregame warmup shirts supporting the fight for anti-black racism.

Trees In The House!

Stanford Athletics has teamed up with Lowe’s to create a home-forest advantage by staging more than 450 trees in Stanford Stadium. Lowe’s is donating drought-resistant, locally sourced, native trees to cheer on the Cardinal all season long. Stanford Athletics will water and care for the trees throughout the season, and afterwards, all 450+ trees will be replanted in Bay Area communities. Local city works departments and other nonprofits will replant the trees to grow urban forest canopy, address climate change, and create healthier communities that are greener and more resilient. For more information, click here.
