Numerous college football coaches and players havein the wake of George Floyd's murder. As protests continue across the country, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has joined others in marching against the systematic brutality against the black community.
Harbaugh, along with Wolverines football players and basketball forward Isaiah Livers, was part of a peaceful walk in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on Tuesday morning as a display of solidarity against police brutality, according to MLive.com. The walk was organized by former Michigan football walk-on Mahmoud Issa. Ann Arbor Police Chief Michael Cox, Mayor Christopher Taylor and Washtenaw County Sheriff Jerry Clayton were also among those to participate.

"They wanted to make sure they could help out to make sure their connection (to the march) was known," Issa told MLive.com. "It led everyone to come out to help. We all know there's unrest going on in the community. Everyone wants to do something, but they just don't know where to start. By starting this, it gave everyone an easy way to help out, make a difference and get the message out."
Harbaugh previously posted on Twitter his support for equality and justice in the wake of Floyd's murder, breaking nearly a six-month absence from his account.
I am really proud of @JayHarbaugh @JamesHarbaughJr @grace_harbaugh for expressing themselves.— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) May 31, 2020
I believe in equal justice for all.
All injustice should be confronted and punished. It has to be equal and fair for all, and no one can be above the law. I pray we can get there! https://t.co/d7JQkZqdzW
