Damian Lillard locks arms with citizens in Black Lives Matter protest

Damian Lillard, Black Lives Matter

Portland Trail Blazers superstar Damian Lillard locked his arms in solidarity with Black Lives Matters protesters on Thursday in the wake of the unjust killing of George Floyd.

The Blazers’ social media page proudly shared a clip of Lillard walking the streets of Waterfront Park of Southeast Portland.


With a bottle of water in hand, Lillard donned a teal mask and wore a black and grey ensemble to demand equal rights and take a stand against racial injustice and police brutality.

Portland protesters have been flooding the streets and letting their voices be heard for the eight-night in a row.

Damian Lillard, a 5-time All-Star, has certainly used his platform and stature to raise awareness about the oppression that has been plaguing the African-American community for generations. His Blazers backcourt mate CJ McCollum has also been equally vocal in support of the BLM movement.

The Blazers, with Damian Lillard, are one of the 22 teams who will return to action once the NBA resumes its 2019-20 campaign on July 31.
