How the Dodgers’ social justice campaign will benefit Southern California

On July 16, several Dodger players appeared in a pre-recorded video released by the team. It came nearly two months after George Floyd died beneath the knee of a Minneapolis police officer.

The video ended with pitcher Clayton Kershaw saying, “we must unapologetically say that black lives matter.” Those words resonated. But they were not a shoutout to Black Lives Matter, a globa...
