In the District of Change, we rise up.
We rise to the challenge to win not only on the court, but in our community.
We rise for equality, for justice and to champion inclusion for all.
Honoring those that came before us and acknowledging the continued progress we must make, we are proud to present the Mystics 2021 REBEL EDITION Uniform.
We want to continue that legacy of being the District of Change. To carry the torch of the leaders, freedom fighters and changemakers that came before us and carved out a place for women — enabling and empowering us to be where we are today. And that’s only the beginning.
For almost three decades, we have fiercely fought for our place in sports. To redefine and rebuild what it means to be a woman, to be an athlete, to be a champion. Strong, committed and united, we continue to push for the win and claim victory for our city.
Now, we use our collective power to join our fellow sisters and brothers shouting for justice. Climbing onward and upward, we strive to be a spark for meaningful social change.
Our team is built upon the principles of inclusion and resiliency, supporting one another, arm in arm, in the face of adversity. Every knee taken, every fist quietly raised is a step forward in the movement for true equality. And until fully realized, we challenge the status quo and call upon ourselves and others to act, to persevere against the barriers that uphold injustice.
silence is not
As the women of today, we refuse to allow ourselves to be sidelined, just as we refuse to allow others to be boxed out on the basis of gender, race, sexuality, ability or identity.
As champions, we rise to defend our rights and march to further progress in our city and throughout our country.
