Dallas ‘Mavs Take ACTION!’ to Address Racial Inequality; AAC Will Be Voting Super Center


As part of NBA player demanded initiatives amid social justice unrest across the country, the home of the Dallas Mavericks will transform into a voting super center on Election Day, Nov. 3.   The American Airlines Center will serve as the largest polling place in Dallas County, according to a release from the team.
The release detailed Friday detailed plans to tackle racial inequality — the initiative dubbed “Mavs Take ACTION!” is in response to the protests over the summer, followed by a player boycott this week after the 7-shots police shooting death of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. It’s been reported that team owner Mark  Cuban was on board with the plan from the very beginning.


The release states that ACTION! stands for advocacy, communication, training, investment, outreach and noise, with the exclamation point standing for the team’s plan to donate $1 million in PPE (personal protective equipment) to Dallas ISD.
