Colin Kaepernick named GQ’s ‘Citizen of the Year’!

Former NFL star Colin Kaepernick has been recognized for his ongoing activism by recently being named GQ’s 2017 Citizen of the year!

He has been vilified by millions and locked out of the NFL, all because he took a knee to protest police brutality. But Colin Kaepernick’s determined stand puts him in rare company in sports history: Muhammad Ali, Jackie Robinson, athletes who risked everything to make a difference.

In the issue, Kaepernick’s biggest fan, his girlfriend (radio personality Nessa Diab) wrote about why he’s so worthy of the honor.

Kaepernick and Diab have been together for nearly three years and they have worked together toward bringing awareness to social injustice during their relationship.
