WNBA New York Liberty, Seattle Storm Walk Off Court During National Anthem

"We are also dedicating this season to Say Her Name Campaign, a campaign committed to saying the names and fighting for justice for Black women", she added.

Taylor, a 26-year-old Black emergency medical technician, was killed on 13 March after police officers entered her apartment, executing a "no-knock" search warrant. The Social Justice Council on Wednesday held a Zoom call with Taylor's mother, Tamika Palmer, who shared memories of Taylor with the players.

Before the start of its 2020 campaign on Saturday, the WNBA dedicated the season to Breonna Taylor and the Say Her Name movement, which raises awareness for Black female victims of police violence. "In my first game, 12, six and four is something that I'm going to live with and I'm not going to get too down on myself because we play in a couple of days and I have to learn from those mistakes and continue to grow".

On Saturday, players from the Storm and the Liberty headed for their locker rooms while the national anthem played at the WNBA bubble at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. "Everything we've done as activists and organizers is wanting to make sure we're honoring". A picture of Taylor was also included in the graphic. "We will say her name".

The initiative isn't new for the WNBA, which has participated in protests throughout the years - since, as The Guardian put it, "before it was cool". Indiana Fever players knelt during the 2016 playoffs to protest the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling and to support quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who knelt during the anthem before National Football League games.

Her official comeback was over when she returned to play a few games for Team USA last winter, proof that she had recovered from a torn Achilles that cost her the 2019 season WNBA season with the Seattle Storm.

The Storm won the WNBA season opening game, 87 to 71. We just didn't knock them down.

"It just kind of really makes me think back of everything that I went through, from the recovery process, from the rehab standpoint, and getting back to this point".
