In light of the recent killing of George Floyd and the civil unrest in the name of black equality, New England Patriots defensive backs Devin and Jason McCourty are hosting a special episode of their DoubleCoverage Podcast Live at 3pm EST on Thursday, June 4, 2020. The episode, entitled Bridge to Action, will air on the McCourty’s Double Coverage YouTube channel and feature former FBI special agent, M. Quentin Williams. Williams is the Founder and CEO of the non-profit organization Dedication to Community, whose mission is to “empower individuals and communities to achieve their business and societal goals through the spirit of entrepreneurial enterprise and community advocacy.”
The McCourty Twins and Williams will discuss the recent killings of unarmed black men, the relationship between law enforcement and communities of color, and next steps to implementing positive change in the United States, and other related topics.
“We want to emphasize that we’re discussing actionable items and that there are plenty of ways to get involved,” said Jason McCourty.
M. Quentin Williams is an attorney, international speaker, former FBI agent and federal prosecutor who has held positions as an executive with the National Football League (NFL) and National Basketball Association (NBA). Williams currently serves as an industry adviser, business strategist, crisis management consultant and legal expert with a wealth of knowledge and experience in wide-ranging areas of business, including the sports and entertainment industries.
Devin and Jason McCourty were recently named finalists for the Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award. The Twins have been heavily involved in advocacy for underserved communities, recently launching “Chromebooks for Kids” and donating $90,000 for computers to aid underserved students in the East Ramapo and Nyack, New York school districts during the COVID-19 pandemic. As recently as October 2019 Devin and Jason used their platforms to advocate for the passing of the Student Opportunity Act, which will invest $1.5 billion in the Massachusetts public education system.
Double Coverage was developed by Devin and Jason in partnership with Malka Sports, giving the Twins a media platform to express everything from family and football to current events via the perspective of two of the NFL’s most respected, thoughtful and charismatic players.
