    Kickin’ Back with Yael Averbuch West – Equalizer Soccer

    NWSL Players Association co-executive director Yael Averbuch West joins the Kickin’ Back podcast to discuss racial inequality in the world, and how NWSL players are using their platforms to speak out against racism.

    Yael also speaks about the players’ ability to secure guaranteed pay for the NWSL Challenge Cup during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the health challenges which made her step away from the pro game (but why she’ll never use the word “retired”).
