( ENSPIRE Community ) The NBA & WNBA Are Doing Their Best To Keep Fans Informed
Every weekday, members of the NBA and WNBA family have been engaging with fans globally by hosting sessions and taking questions from fans on live. A few weeks ago they launched “NBA Together” and “WNBA Together”. It is a new leaguewide, global community outreach and social engagement campaign to educate and inspire youth, families, fans and the general public. Using their vast footprint and platform, the goal is to amplify global health information and keep communities connected through social tools and virtual events.
The other week, WNBA Champion Elena Delle Donne took over Instagram Live on Wednesday, and two-time All-Star A’ja Wilson hosted the Twitter Q&A with fans on Friday!
Additionally, as part of NBA Together, NBA & WNBA players, legends and coaches are filming PSAs from home that shares messages of support and tips for reducing risk, staying healthy and practicing social distancing. More than 26 players and legends have participated in PSAs, generating more than 50 Million video views across the league’s Instagram Twitter, Facebook, and TikTok platforms since the first PSA launched on March 13. See below for a few of the WNBA PSAs:
- Candace Parker (LA Sparks)
“The most important thing that we all have to do right now is to be good teammates. We need everybody to hold themselves accountable and hold their loved ones, their family, their friends, their associates accountable because social distancing is going to slow the spread of coronavirus.”
- Layshia Clarendon (New York Liberty):
“Really trying to take this moment to self-quarantine so we can stop the spike of the coronavirus and hopefully flatten the curve so fewer people get it, so we can expose less people. Please take care of your mental health at this time as well. It’s super, super important.”
“I just wanted to tap in and make sure that we’re all following the important steps that health officials are telling us to follow.”
• Bria Holmes (Connecticut Sun)
–You’re never too young to learn good habits!
• Candice Dupree (Indiana Fever)
“There’s so much we can do to keep ourselves, our family and our community healthy. First wash your hands with soap and water regularly, practice social distancing, don’t gather in large crowds, and avoid those who may be sick. Let’s take care of each other and stay safe and healthy.”
