NHL: Postpone playoff games in support of Jacob Blake
Postpone playoff games in support of Jacob Blake
Why is this important?
The sports world is taking bold action in solidarity with Jacob Blake, an unarmed black man who was shot and paralyzed by a white Wisconsin police officer a few days ago.
The NBA, WNBA, MLB and MLS have all postponed games in the wake of players and team's speaking out against the shooting and boycotting games.
Notably absent from this list is the NHL.
The NHL has issued a statement, taken a "moment of reflection" before Wednesday nights game, but continued with games as usual.
Sign your name calling on the NHL to postpone playoff games, along with other major sports leagues in America, who are taking a stand in support of Jacob Blake, and the Black Lives Matter movement.
