City of Palms alum taking part in social justice reform
As social justice issues continue to make headlines across the country some former City of Palms players, currently in the NBA, are making statements by putting their names to many of the calls for reform.
One of them, Boston Celtics guard Jayson Tatum, wowed fans at the City of Palms back in 2015 with his Chaminade Red Devils. Tatum is currently working on a voter registration initiative called the #MyStartingFive Challenge, alongside NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal. The two teamed up with a nonpartisan voting initiative, When We All Vote, on social media to encourage more Americans to get registered and ready to vote leading up to November.
Through the challenge, participants nominate five people to register and pledge to vote using #MyStartingFive across social media platforms. Starting with O’Neal and Tatum, and expanding to millions of people engaged on social media, this challenge will help meet When We All Vote’s goal of increasing participation in every election.
The #MyStartingFive challenge is a part of that effort and participants can get registered and ready to vote.
