What They're Saying: Sarah Gorden

"The interviews that I'm doing are going to be about this movement. Obviously, I can talk on soccer, but everything is centered on this movement right now. That's what I want to be talking about. It is draining and I think that that's the biggest difference between being a white athlete and a Black athlete, is that you can't turn it off. Being a Black athlete, having a Black child, having Black family and friends -- you can't turn that off."
