The Baltimore Ravens and local nonprofit Thread partnered with local organizations to unite thousands of fans for the second annual Gameday Conversations Nov. 10 at T. Rowe Price, a series of citywide Ravens watch parties aimed at developing relationships that transcend lines of difference, such as age, race, class and ZIP code.
The Ravens and Thread believe that sport has the power to be a great unifier. Bringing together neighbors on Sundays to share in the excitement of and passion for football offers a safe space for people to get to know one another, even if they don’t look alike or routinely experience the city in the same way.
The watch parties provide the Ravens with a special opportunity to engage the community and support their fans. In its inaugural year, Gameday attracted more than 500 people in more than 20 locations who played a trivia game to encourage open dialogue about pressing issues that face Baltimore and the nation.
This initiative falls in line with the Ravens’ overall commitment to strengthen Baltimore, which includes financial support of many Baltimore public schools including HVAC donations, as well as the team’s expansive Play 60 initiative, The Ravens Bookmobiles and the Ravens Foundation Scholars program.
