Fascinating watching Renee talk through her feelings of how she may be able to make an impact and that her nature is that she can't do both (Focus on Basketball and be a leader in her community). Geno also pushed the idea that you can only affect things locally and that is where people should focus.
Another topic Geno discussed in detail in the IGLive interview. Geno had mentioned he had pushed about the issues of voter inaccessibility in (rural?) Georgia with Olivia (A small town GA girl)Her main focus between now and November will be on voter suppression in Georgia. This is a huge issue in our country and it’s getting worse right now, not better. Hooray for Renee!
We should all follow Renee and dedicate ourselves to reducing the consequences of racism in our communities."There's work to be done off the court in so many areas in our community," Montgomery tweeted Thursday morning. "Social justice reform isn't going to happen overnight, but I do feel that now is the time and Moments equal Momentum. Let's keep it going!"
Montgomery has raised money to help protesters and support the Black Lives Matter movement. The St. Albans, West Virginia, native will continue that and do speaking engagements in the Atlanta community and beyond.
