The Green Bay Packers shared a video on their Twitter account Thursday morning that conveyed intense emotion and a powerful message.

Taking a strong stance against racism, police brutality and “a broken system,” the Packers called for change.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers shared the video as well, quote-tweeting with a simple emoji that shows how much it meant to him.

We’ve seen in recent days that many NFL teams have veered away from discussing football during their Zoom calls. Instead, they have been spending time talking about the unrest in America stemming from the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis.

The Packers clearly have done this, and this video highlights their passion to help effectuate change in this nation.
