LeBron James repeats calls for social change
Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James again talked about the call for social change, echoing the statements he made at last month's ESPY awards.
James repeated his stance on Tuesday at an event hosted by the LeBron James Family Foundation at an amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio. James sponsored school children and their families in the Akron area to attend Cedar Point Amusement Park for free.
“What are we doing to create change?” James told the crowd of about 5,000. “It starts brick by brick. Family by family.”
James garnered national attention when he took the stage at the ESPY awards with fellow All-Stars Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony with a call for change and social justice.
James also said that the annual event, now in its sixth year, is a source of pride for him. Last summer, James partnered with the University of Akron, pledging four-year college scholarships for students who complete an education and mentioning program.
“This [reunion] is always the greatest night for myself,” James said. “Another great night was at Golden State. Yeah, that was a great night. But this trumps it all.”
