In February, Hockey Is For Everyone
The turn of the calendar from January to February marked the beginning of The National Hockey League’s Hockey Is For Everyone month. The campaign, in partnership with the You Can Play Project, will feature daily activities that will focus awareness on such areas as LGBTQ, ethnicity and gender equality, socio-economic status, and those with disabilities.
The campaign is supported by the NHL, all the League’s member clubs, and the National Hockey League Players’ Association.
According to the NHL, the campaign “uses the game of hockey — and the League’s global influence — to drive positive social change and foster more inclusive communities.”
Hockey Is For Everyone drives to encourage teamwork, inclusiveness and diversity in hockey at all levels daily for an entire calendar month.
