An intimate conversation series with today’s leading
artists, creatives, and leaders.
'Is Anyone Listening?' is a conversation series with some of the leading artists, creatives, and leaders of today leaning into subjects that are culturally important. This series convenes dialogue with the intention to inspire, enhance humanity, and impact culture.
TURN INTENT INTO ACTION
Some say the world is changing too fast. We say it’s not changing fast enough. Injustice. Discrimination. Inequality. These issues are not slowing down. So neither will we.
Over the years, PUMA has partnered with athletes and ambassadors who have raised their voices to support universal equality. Individuals like former Olympian Tommie Smith, who inspired all races, religions, and nations to join together around justice and acceptance for all.
In 2018, we established #REFORM to honor the 50th anniversary of Tommie Smith’s Silent Gesture. To stand up against systemic racism, fight for LGBTQ+ rights, and push for Gender Equality. To support leaders and organizations who inspire real change with real action.
SWIFT JUSTICE FOR THOSE NEVER GIVEN IT.
Racial and social imbalances have led to criminal justice systems that are anything but just. That’s why PUMA supports organizations like REFORM Alliance and the ACLU to advocate for meaningful changes to a broken system.
InnerCity Weightlifting is a Boston-based gym that aims to replace segregation and isolation with economic mobility and social inclusion, disrupting the system that leads to urban street violence.
The goal of the REFORM Alliance is to dramatically reduce the number of people who are unjustly under the control of the criminal justice system – starting with probation and parole.
TRAYVON MARTIN FOUNDATION
The Trayvon Martin Foundation is committed to ending senseless gun violence, strengthening families through holistic support, S.T.E.M. education for women and minorities and mentoring.
DON’T JUST MARCH. RUN TOWARDS CHANGE.
Living without discrimination should not be open to debate. That’s why PUMA is working with human rights nonprofits like The Trevor Project and BAGLY to accelerate equal rights, personal autonomy, and freedom of expression for LGBTQ+ communities.
The Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth, is the oldest youth-led, LGBTQ+ support organization in the United States. They are committed to creating, sustaining, and advocating for programs, policies, and services for the LGBTQ+ youth community.
FOOTBALL V HOMOPHOBIA
FvH is an international initiative that exists to challenge discrimination based on sexual orientation gender identity and expression at all levels of football.
THE TREVOR PROJECT
The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning young people under the age of 25.
GENDER EQUALITY AT UNEQUALED SPEED.
Gender equality is a fundamental human right that we can’t afford to get wrong. That’s why PUMA supports organizations like Women Win and Manchester City, which are pushing to make sure women have equal access to opportunities and strong role models to look up to.
We partnered with Manchester City’s #SameGoals campaign which encourages young girls to play and stay in football. We also provide support for the global Cityzens Giving Young Leaders Summit and City in the Community initiatives.
Women Win is the global leader in girls’ and women’s empowerment through sport. They leverage the power of play to help adolescent girls and young women build leadership skills and become better equipped to exercise their rights.
