“Statements are words,” Saints owner Gayle Benson said Monday.
“Unified action towards a solution is what needs to come from this now,” Benson added in a long statement.
To that end, Benson formed a Social Justice Leadership Coalition within her two organizations, the Saints and the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans. Saints linebacker Demario Davis and Pelicans players Lonzo Ball and JJ Redick are helping spearhead the joint effort.
“This is not about making statements to appease people. This is about making a difference and working together,” Benson wrote.
