This Month’s Article:
Source: Sporting News
Author: David Steele
Questions for Discussion:
- Do you agree with the NCAA’s decisions to bring championship games back to North Carolina? Why or why not?
- The author of this piece asserts that the NCAA has lost its leverage to stand up against anti-LGBTQ legislation in North Carolina and other states moving forward. What impact do you think this will have on lawmakers in states considering discriminatory bills?
- What can allies, who are also college sports fans, that do not support this decision do to demonstrate their ongoing commitment to LGBTQ athletes moving forward?
