About Seattle Sounders FC
Two-time MLS Cup champions, the Seattle Sounders FC are also leaders in bringing social justice values to the forefront of their business and their team. With this framework integrated into all their operations, the Sounders are committed to fighting racism, defending the right to play, standing for LGBTQ+ equality, and protecting our planet. They have used their platform to elevate individuals, organizations, and experts working with underserved communities, including the GSBA Scholarship & Education Fund for several years during their annual Pride game. In 2021, the Sounders collaborated with TransFamilies (FKA Gender Diversity) and the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association to create the Gender Diverse Youth Sports Inclusivity Toolkit to address best practices for including and supporting transgender and nonbinary students on an equitable playing field.
