Pac-12 Group Seeks Quick Action on Demands

Jason Scott Headshot

A group of student-athletes from Pac-12 schools who are members of the #WeAreUnited campaign has sought to push conference leadership toward quick action to address its demands.

The group published a list of demands in an article on The Player's Tribune calling for action on issues such as the coronavirus pandemic, racial injustice, economic opportunity for student-athletes and protecting non-revenue sports — and threatening to opt-out of both camps and games if the demands weren’t met. The group made national headlines, and caught the attention of Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott, who the group also addressed directly via email. 

According to ESPN, Scott responded to the group via email, addressing some of their concerns and proposing a dialogue later this week. That timeline wasn’t quick enough for #WeAreUnited.
