In honor of Verizon’s 20th anniversary, #Next20 is our new series that discusses the top social, business and technology issues through the stories and experiences of emerging and seasoned change-makers.

The Sports Activism episode features a star-studded cast: NBA Hall of Famer Ray Allen, two-time WNBA champion Renee Montgomery and NBA All-Star Jrue Holiday of the Milwaukee Bucks. Yahoo Sports’ NBA Insider Chris Haynes moderated the panel.

It’s a powerful conversation that offers solutions on how to combat systemic racism, addressing the need for education and voter reform, discussing ways athletes can get more involved in uplifting their communities, stressing the importance of holding the new administration accountable and how corporations can serve as productive allies.

In a riveting, robust hour, it’s a conversation that’s seldom spoken in public from three salient figures in the basketball world. They’re speaking out for change and it’s a series that’s well worth your time.

#Next20 will live stream on the @Verizon’s Twitter handle Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET.
