This morning, the Players Coalition launched the first PSA of the Responsibility Program, which will feature public service announcements (PSAs) that will educate people and raise awareness about the injustices affecting community and police relations in the United States.
The first PSA is centered around Danroy “DJ” Henry, the former Pace University football player who was fatally shot by a police officer on Oct. 17, 2010 in Mount Pleasant, N.Y, and his mother Angella Henry is narrating and sharing the story of her son.

“We have a responsibility to use our platforms to unite people and foster positive change in our communities, but we can’t achieve that goal without education. We want this PSA to generate productive dialogue between people of all backgrounds, so we can start to bridge the communication gap and work together to end these injustices.”
