The International Black Film Festival is proud to work in partnership with The Players Alliance and Pull Up Neighbor to present the Pull Up Nashville Pandemic Relief event. IBFF along with its new community partner Spirit of Truth Baptist Fellowship will host a drive-up only event to disburse food, masks, hand sanitizer, gloves, Lysol, and baseball paraphernalia to individuals and families in need on Saturday, December 19, 2020, at Pearl Cohn High School from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm CST. Strict Covid-19 protocol will be adhered to for all participants.
The Players Alliance, a nonprofit organization comprised of more than 150 active and former Major League Baseball Players, seeks to improve the representation of Black Americans in all levels of the game. This season on Jackie Robinson Day, MLB Players from across the league donated their game-day salaries to The Players Alliance, raising more than $1 million, which the organization is re-investing in the Black community. Major League Baseball is matching the Alliance’s investment with a donation of an additional $1 million worth of supplies and baseball equipment, expanding the Alliance’s reach in the communities that need it most. Pull Up Neighbor, a Black-owned community response team is working in partnership with the Players Alliance to carry out the tour over two months and 30+ cities.
*This event is public open to all communities while supplies last.
