Ryan has admitted in past interviews that as a White man, he wants to help but doesn’t quite know how. So he has gathered an advisory council of sports figures, activists, business leaders, philanthropists and Black influencers in the Atlanta region to help him distribute the money in a productive way.
“I made a commitment to listening and learning, and I am putting that commitment into motion,” said Ryan in a press release. “Now is the time to be an ally and take action. This radiothon will raise funds that will help us take those next steps toward positive transformation.”
