Maryland basketball continues to show its commitment to furthering the conversation regarding social injustice, announcing its involvement in launching Coaches 4 Change (C4C) Wednesday.

Comprised of over 40 basketball coaches, C4C is an organization that seeks to provide a platform that engages, educates, empowers and evolves student-athletes on issues of social injustices, systemic racism and the power of voting in the endless pursuit of equality. Director of basketball operations Mark Bialkoski will be the Terps’ representative.

“I’m truly honored to represent University of Maryland men’s basketball through Coaches 4 Change,” Bialkoski said in a press release. “As coaches, we have the platform to make change not only in our local community, but worldwide as we work together to educate, engage, empower and evolve. We are committed to sustaining the conversation on system racial injustices through our voices and actions.”

Head coach Mark Turgeon also took to social media on Wednesday to echo his condemnation of systemic racism in America, voicing support for his players and for the ongoing movement to end inequality.
