The Leonard A. Marshall Foundation was founded by NFL all star Leonard Marshall because “I grew up experiencing segregation and separation and the first place that changed that was the Giants. They gave me a team where everyone shared the same spirit and felt part of that family”. The LAMF strives to raise a generation that feels safer because it is more aware, more open, more trusting, and more connected. We envision a nation where people share a common team spirit regardless of their background, views, inclinations and preferences. Because when someone feels unsafe, stressed or segregated, their well-being suffers, their academic performance suffer, their plans for life suffer and with it the entire environment around them becomes toxic. We believe we can change that by learning to value the power of togetherness over differences.
