Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation - The Playbook Initiative

Program Overview

Inspired by members of the 2016-17 Celtics roster, the Shamrock Foundation launched an anti-discrimination and bias-prevention program called The Playbook Initiative.  The program, which resulted in the creation of a “social playbook”, inspires a dialogue on race, religion, gender, disability and sexual orientation and ultimately equips kids with the tools to intervene in challenging social situations.
