The FOOTBALL UNITES™ Captains Program is a diversity and inclusion initiative that brings middle school students together once a month for a day of learning about tolerance, acceptance and leadership.
FOOTBALL UNITES™ CommUNITY Tailgates
FOOTBALL UNITES™ CommUNITY tailgates, funded by ownership and players, are an opportunity to use football to unite groups of different races, genders, sexual orientation, identities and abilities. Diverse groups will attend Dolphins home games, fellowship and participate in group activities designed to break down barriers and build relationships.
