“Thank You Black Women!”: WNBA Players React to the Election

The WNBA players dedicated the 2020 season to social justice. Among their many actions, the players determined that they could make an immediate impact by registering people to vote. WNBA players joined together with NBA players to launch Hoopers Vote and the WNBPA took action inspired by the 19th Amendment to make sure young Americans were registered.
