the local, national, and global sports franchises are the backbone of the American expression; and
local sport franchises are stakeholders in urban, suburban, and rural communities; and
global sports franchises are sustainable partners in the American economy; and
the Women’s National Basketball Association powerfully embraces women’s rights and cultural rights of all Americans; and
the WNBA is a critical leader in the Black Lives Matter reform initiatives;
As a U.S. Senator possibility, it is my duty, honor, and privilege to deliver this Statement of Special Recognition to the Women’s National Basketball Association for its commitment to the Black Lives Matter movement in the dawn of the 21st century."
