Sounders FC is an anti-racist organization. We are committed to using soccer as a tool to improve the systemic inequities that systemically harm Black youth; to identifying experts, listening to them and using our platform to amplify their voices; and to supporting local Black-owned businesses that have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Support BIPOC-Owned Businesses

Sounders FC and RAVE Foundation have partnered with the Northwest African American Museum for ‘Books and Balls’ giveaways in historically marginalized communities throughout the year. RAVE Foundation provides a soccer ball to each youth, to give them access to sport and play, while NAAM provides children’s books curated by Black authors, illustrated by Black artists, and that center and affirm Black characters.
