About Mission 5 & 2

Mission 5 & 2 offers youth sports programs that value and foster respect for everyone,
starting with a hand shake (5)
and eye contact (2).


We offer opportunities for kids to participate in sports providing teachable moments every step along the way about sportsmanship, competition, humility, perseverance and teamwork. Since everyone is fighting a battle most people know nothing about, Mission 5 & 2 believes that every human interaction should be framed by kindness.

Can you help us spread the Mission?

PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS

Ray of Hope: A conversation about diversity, equity and inclusion

Meet Mr. Mission 5 & 2 - we have found him! In listening to this Kelly Corrigan Wonders Podcast last Fall, we were introduced to a man named Anthony Ray Hinton, who served almost 30 years on Alabama's death row for crimes he did not commit. Bryan Stevenson, a lawyer and social justice activist, has worked to shine a light on the bias and racism against minorities in the criminal justice system for many years. Mr. Stevenson founded the Equal Justice Initiative and through their efforts, Mr. Hinton was declared wrongly accused of double murder in 2015 and other charges and finally set free.  Mr. Hinton embodies everything we need to teach our kids about diversity, equity and inclusion and living in a non-judgmental way. This message coming from a man treated so despicably - who chose freedom in captivity, caring over indifference, love over hate - carries so much weight that his story demands attention. We, as his fellow Americans, owe him that right.

Please help us bring him to Philadelphia and join NY Times bestselling author, podcaster and host of PBS's Tell Me More Kelly Corrigan as she helps us get to know Mr. Hinton in this important conversation. This is a FREE event because we feel as though it will be a worthwhile and powerful message for all in attendance.

In addition native Philadelphian Omar Tate will be interviewed. Omar is a Philadelphia chef and artist creating a community center in West Philadelphia that will include a supper club, grocery shop, meat market, cafe library. Tate’s new center aims to be more than a place to buy food; it aims to be a place that will nourish the community by offering a beautiful and diverse space where people are respected, because Omar believes we all desire respect, dignity, and cleanliness in our neighborhoods and community. both interviews will air on PBS in Fall 2022!
