Carmelo Anthony is one of five players on the NBA Social Justice Coalition. The coalition also features two head coaches and five team governors. The news about the formation of the NBA Social Justice Coalition, and Anthony’s role in that group, was announced on Monday by The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

In a follow up message on social media, Charania provided a brief overview of the coalition.

The NBA and NBPA agreed to create the Social Justice Coalition — group to advance equality and social justice — in aftermath of the Bucks leading teams walking out of games in late August. Adam Silver, Mark Tatum and Michele Roberts will also be on the Board, sources said.

Earlier in the year, Anthony also served as a guest editor for a special edition of Slam Magazine that focused on equality and social justice. Anthony, who will turn 37 next year, is a veteran of 17 season in the NBA.
