Center for Sport and Social Justice

Let’s PLAY!

It’s time to change the way our society thinks about sport and physical activity. At the Center for Sport and Social Justice, we are passionate about making sport at every level more inclusive, more democratic…and joyful!

We keep the conversation open through ongoing research, workshops, lectures, and community outreach. We provide a network for CSU East Bay students and faculty, community members, and academic experts to share ideas and experiences. Most importantly, we find innovative ways to use sport as a vehicle to create positive and lasting social change.

If you’re ready to get involved, we’d love to have you on our team!

Check out our Student Club page for ways to get involved as a student, if interested in learning more about advisory board membership please contact Matthew Atencio or Missy Wright. And we welcome donations to the Center!
