Hi everyone! My name is Jashvina and I cover hockey. I've covered the sport for eight years. While I love it with all my heart, as a brown woman I've noticed how hostile the sport can be to anyone who isn't a cis, straight, white man. As a brown woman, the intersection of sports and civil rights -- and how sports acts as a microcosm for society -- is incredibly important to me. People often like to tell us who speak out to "stick to sports." But, I didn't want to :)

So I founded this  podcast and the accompanying  newsletter to address issues in sports, be it racism, sexism or homophobia, and discuss the spaces where sports and civil rights naturally intersect. My goal has been to make this a safe space for marginalized voices in the community and to educate others.  

I started this because it's very difficult to place content about sports and social justice within mainstream media and difficult to pitch these stories as freelance ideas. Often for minorities, especially WoC, if we want to speak about things like these, we have to do it on our time and out of our own pocket. This is something that I really, really care a lot about. It takes a lot of time to put this together, as well as some money (for the SoundCloud account and the equipment) and any contributions would help me keep this going!
