Jaylen Brown along with Malcolm Brogdon and Grant Williams met with members of the Department of Justice and President Joe Biden's administration to discuss changes in policy.
Thank you to the @WhiteHouse and Justice Department officials for hosting us yesterday and taking the time to discuss social justice priorities and criminal justice reform. ⁰⁰We will continue to use our platforms to make a meaningful impact in our communities. pic.twitter.com/R2MG33ABRp— Boston Celtics (@celtics) March 28, 2023
"We sat down and had a conversation about some of the things going on," Brown said during his post-practice presser. "How to use our platform more, how to collaborate, just get more involved. I think that athletes have a tremendous platform, regardless of if people want us to use it or not."
"Malcolm is my brother, on the court and off," Brown said. "A lot of the things he stands for I appreciate but also I have a tremendous amount of respect for. What he's doing in Africa with his foundation with the clean water, he just spoke at the United Nations last week. He's just a model of how athletes can have an impact, have an incredible amount of influence and responsibility in their community and how people should want us to do more with it than come out and play a game with a ticket price and then go home."
"One of our roles as the vice presidents of the Players Association is to pull our counterparts in and make it more comfortable for everyone," Brown explained. "We still want to get more people involved, more players involved, more athletes involved to use their platform because I think we're stronger together."
