The conversation on racism in America is continuing and many around the country are asking questions about how to turn these words into meaningful action. A pair of Badgers, Madison Cone and Izayah Green-May, are continuing to lead the way on racial justice efforts among their peers at Wisconsin while working to take their impact beyond the program. Cone is representing UW on the newly-formed Big Ten Anti-Hate and Anti-Racism Coalition while Green-May has been tabbed to serve as president of the group Student-Athletes Equally Supporting Others (SAESO) within UW Athletics. They join Brian and Patrick to discuss their experiences, what Badgers of all stripes can do to further the movement for social justice and what it's like to be back in Madison with their football teammates for the first time in months.
