Major League Soccer Launches ‘Don’t Cross the Line’ Anti-Discrimination Campaign
Major League Soccer’s All Stars came together to star in a new video called “Don’t Cross the Line” to combat discrimination and harassment.
Landon Donovan, Kyle Beckerman, Dwayne De Rosario, Chris Pontius, Carlos Valdes, Graham Zusi all feature in the video aimed at combating homophobia, racism, and sexism.
An initiative of MLS Works launched late Friday, Don’t Cross the Line is also an online pledge and the League will be making a donation to anti-discrimination causes for every pledge made through the remainder of the 2012 season.
Said MLS Works in the introductory blog post:
Major League Soccer is committed to supporting the communities where we live and play our games, and to providing an environment in which our staff, clubs, players, partners and supporters are treated with dignity and respect. We will not tolerate discrimination, bias, prejudice or harassment of any kind.
Let us know if you see the “Don’t Cross the Line” campaign in action the rest of the season. Are you seeing the video played in stadiums or being promoted by clubs in other ways?
