A basketball with orange outline and white background with words in orange spelling LBA, standing for London Basketball Association.

We stand with those who have been a victim of racial injustice and pledge to stand with those who have been and are still being affected by the systems in place which have had devastating effects on the Black community across the world.  
We understand the importance of equality and we continue to bring communities and minorities together, not only to educate our children on how important it is to not judge an individual on the colour of their skin, but to share our passion for equality to those who involved in LBA, so we can contribute to the goal of one day becoming
a united world in which we all stand together.
