Finalist in Activism

About Colin Kaepernick

There’s no contesting Colin Kaepernick’s recent dominance in the spotlight. The highly controversial ex-NFL quarterback that instigated the 2016 Take A Knee protest against racial injustice has become a devoted activist and powerful social influencer. With a 4M combined social media following, Colin completed his million dollar pledge to donate to charities that help oppressed people across the nation in 2018. Launching back into the spotlight as the face of Nike’s latest campaign, Colin committedly channels that fueled attention towards good, with his recent humanitarian work earning him a W.E.B. Du Bois Medal and an Ambassador of Conscience award by Amnesty International in 2018.
