Words to Action
The ISSSSC celebrates and empowers athletes to use their platforms to advocate for social change. We are dedicated to research, analysis and education at the intersection of sport and society. ISSSSC mission efforts are made possible through the San José State University mission to enrich the lives of its students, to transmit knowledge to its students along with the necessary skills for applying it in the service of our society, and to expand the base of knowledge through research and scholarship.
In this second annual conference, ISSSSC discussed the social activist work of Dr. Edwards through an examination of a pivotal year of social movements, social change, and the sporting voices of athletes. This conference hosted keynote panels, change agent organizations, and educational teachings with ISSSSC’s Words to Action workshops.
