End ban on head-covering in international basketball
About the movement
Join me and fellow basketball players demanding that the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) allow head-covering for religious reasons in competition. In 2014, we successfully petitioned FIBA and received a two-year provisional period. In August 2016, FIBA will make a decision on whether they will allow head-covering permanently on all levels: national, international, and at the Olympics.
My friends and I need your help to make sure that they rule in our favor. We are showing FIBA that basketball is a universal sport and people of all backgrounds want to play. If you stand for respect in sport, join our movement. With you, all basketball players will have their rights to play basketball globally.
