Our country continues to face its long history of racism, injustice and inequality. Our African-American community faces this every day. We must all work together to create meaningful change in our society. We can no longer ignore or be silent with the inequities that exist. We must speak up and speak out.
The Montgomery County Sports Hall of Fame (MCSHF) mission is to honor and recognize significant achievement in sports in Montgomery County and to build a better community through sports. We respect and value the dignity of individuals of color. We are committed to inclusion and equality. Every person, regardless of color, gender, or creed, should have equal access to opportunities in our society. As an organization, we have a responsibility to speak up when we see actions that do not support our values.
