Statement from the Kansas City Royals

June 2nd, 2020

KANSAS CITY, MO. (June 1, 2020) – Words alone fail us. There is no place in our world for the senseless acts of racial injustice that have tragically taken lives. No place in Kansas City, nor in any city.  Not today, not ever. 

We humbly stand in solidarity and peaceful protest with the Black community, both here and across America. We pledge to actively and intentionally use our voice for good. And to live by a standard that says we treat all of us the way each of us wants to be treated. 

The Kansas City Royals are committed to doing all we can, wherever we can, to help turn this moment into the sustained change we seek.
