The Inclusion Party has three objectives. First, it seeks to eliminate the above explicit and implicit bias by bringing the NFL and the LGBT communities closer together. Second, the party will support the idea that inclusion comes from changing the whole NFL environment, not just relying on gay or bisexual players to do all the work. The party will bring together people of all identities—coaches, players, team owners, fans, and the like of all sexualities and genders—to publicly show support for inclusion. As the party grows in size and popularity, the change in and around the NFL and the sports world will, too. Finally, the party seeks to cultivate a hate-free zone on which LGBT athletes can rely, whether closeted or open with their sexuality. Players will have a whole organization and many readily identifiable allies for support. ‘
The money raised through the party is donated to diversity centers and anti-bullying organizations within the host city. The Super Bowl Inclusion Party, then, is a traveling campaign of fundraising inclusion, moving yearly to each city hosting the Super Bowl and raising for inclusion-based organizations within that city much-needed financial and networking support.
Hate Is Wrong, the owner and producer of the Super Bowl Inclusion Party, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose purpose is to foster diversity in sports and anti-bullying among youth. It achieves this purpose by delivering inclusion-based education around the country, including its Super Bowl Inclusion Panel, and by throwing the Super Bowl Inclusion Party.
