On Friday, June 24, our president Laila Ali sat down with Billy Bush and Kit Hoover to discuss children, family and the benefits of sports participation, especially for girls and young women. She noted that sports give girls a toolkit for success. Laila’s nationally broadcast interview also helped to elevate awareness for Title IX, the legislation that ensures equal access to both men and women in federally-funded educational programs and activities, including sports programs. WSF remarks begin at 00:03:27.
