Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh, Juwan Howard and MSU’s Mel Tucker join Big Ten’s anti-racism coalition

The Big Ten has introduced a new Anti-Hate and Anti-Racism Coalition, and the state of Michigan will be well represented.

Michigan Wolverines head coaches Jim Harbaugh and Juwan Howard as well as Michigan State’s Mel Tucker have joined the coalition, which includes student athletes, athletic directors and other personnel.

A voter registration initiative has also been introduced.

“The events in our country and around the world during the past few months have strengthened my fundamental belief in our need to develop tangible and actionable efforts in a collective manner and provide viable solutions addressing the issues of hate and racism in our society,” said Big Ten president Kevin Warren.

The initiative was introduced shortly after the death of George Floyd in Minnesota, which sparked nationwide outrage and protests.
