Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does.– Nelson Mandela

Fordham's Global Symposium on Sports & Society will unite some of the world’s most iconic names in athletics, academics, and journalism to share a global perspective on the realities of anti-Semitism, its interface with sports, and strategies for changing the playing field. Presented in conjunction with Chelsea Football Club and New England Revolution’s Final Whistle on Hate campaign.
