Inside New York City’s #IStandWithKap Rally

Scenes from the several-thousand-strong rally outside NFL Headquarters in New York.


This week, we bring you the to the heart of the several-thousand-strong #IStandWithKap rally held outside NFL Headquarters on Park Avenue, in New York City. We have engaging interviews and riveting speeches—including my own, short speech that I was honored to be asked to give. Thank you to The Nation’s Miguel Salazar for his help doing interviews at the rally.

Choice Words is brought to you by Erica Harris DeValve, Princeton grad and the wife of Cleveland Browns tight end Sean DeValve, the first white NFL player to take a knee in these national-anthem protests. She explains why her husband should not be seen as a “savior.” We also respond to listener calls about whether or not the NFL’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick will make you less inclined to watch football. And stay strong Houston!

Thank you for reading The Nation!

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read. It’s just one of many examples of incisive, deeply-reported journalism we publish—journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media. For nearly 160 years, The Nation has spoken truth to power and shone a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug.

In a critical election year as well as a time of media austerity, independent journalism needs your continued support. The best way to do this is with a recurring donation. This month, we are asking readers like you who value truth and democracy to step up and support The Nation with a monthly contribution. We call these monthly donors Sustainers, a small but mighty group of supporters who ensure our team of writers, editors, and fact-checkers have the resources they need to report on breaking news, investigative feature stories that often take weeks or months to report, and much more.

There’s a lot to talk about in the coming months, from the presidential election and Supreme Court battles to the fight for bodily autonomy. We’ll cover all these issues and more, but this is only made possible with support from sustaining donors. Donate today—any amount you can spare each month is appreciated, even just the price of a cup of coffee.

The Nation does not bow to the interests of a corporate owner or advertisers—we answer only to readers like you who make our work possible. Set up a recurring donation today and ensure we can continue to hold the powerful accountable.

Thank you for your generosity.
