Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, UM and Wayne State alum, pledges $13M to fight racism

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross pledged an additional $13 million over four years to his anti-racism RISE initiative, the organization said Friday. The Ross Initiative in Sports for Equality was established five years ago to promote unity and combat systemic racism. RISE says it has helped 12,000 students, athletes, coaches and staff at all levels to help champion social justice and improve race relations. Ross, a Michigan native and University of Michigan and Wayne State alumnus, has now committed $30 million to RISE.
