Malcolm Jenkins Joins CNN as a Social Justice Contributor
ICM Partners is proud to congratulate Malcolm Jenkins on his new role as a CNN contributor, where he will add commentary surrounding racism and social injustice to multiple programs.
When we welcomed the 32 year-old New Orleans Saints safety to the ICM Partners’ family in February, he was already a two-time Super Bowl champion winner, a producer, entrepreneur, and an advocate for social justice and reform. But with the incredible turmoil that has shaken the world over the past few months, we couldn’t be more pleased to support Jenkins as he expands his public platform, leading the way for racial equality and social reform.
“Now more than ever, the public needs to be educated on the roles of elected positions of power, such as the District Attorney, Police Chief or City Council, and how to hold those individuals accountable, especially through their voice and their vote,” Jenkins released in a statement. “In an important election year, I’m eager to join the CNN family and share my perspective as a regular contributor. I also want to thank CNN for their thoughtful leadership in viewing professional athletes beyond their sport as another educated voice who brings a varied perspective and value to the network’s programming and shows.”
Jenkins’ contributions to promoting racial equality extend across various ventures, including a production label, Listen Up Media, currently developing multi-platform content focusing on systemic social issues, and the Players Coalition, a non-profit aimed at impacting social justice and racial equality at the federal, state and local levels through advocacy, awareness, education.
