Bruins Captain Zdeno Chara Marches, Then Speaks Up (Updated)



Zdeno Chara Protesting

A lot of people have talked the talk when it comes to standing up to bigotry, racism, and police brutality in the last ten days. Zdeno Chara talked the talk too, and on Friday he walked the walk. Chara marched in a protest that took place in Brookline on Friday afternoon. Then on Saturday, Chara protested the state of society on Twitter.


Zdeno Chara is the first member of the Boston Bruins to be seen marching at a protest. He’s not the first Boston athlete to publicly use their platform, however. Celtics wing Jaylen Brown drove to Atlanta last weekend to march, while Enes Kanter and Marcus Smart both marched in Boston within the last week.

Chara released a statement late last week via his Instagram, while the Bruins put out a strong message of their own earlier this week. Chara’s teammate Patrice Bergeron also released a statement and made a donation earlier this week.
