Detroit Lions DeAndre Levy Raises Money to Test Rape Kits

NFL players are not only on point when it comes to police brutality. Some are also speaking out against domestic violence and rape.

Detroit Lions lineback DeAndre Levy has put his money where his heart is.

The outspoken advocate against domestic violence and rape is partnering with the Detroit Hustles Harder clothing line to sell “Our Issue” T-shirts. All proceeds from the shirts will go to the Enough SAID program in Detroit.

Enough SAID is a collaboration between multiple organizations and the Wayne County, Mich., Prosecutor’s Office—run by the indomitable Kym Worthy—and is raising money to test more 11,000 rape kits found in a warehouse in the Motor City in 2009.

In a recent Instagram post, Levy said in part that “#DomesticViolence and #SexualAssault aren’t just women’s issues. They’re #OurIssue.”

Levy has also spoken out on the issues of sexual assault, Colin Kaepernick’s protest against police violence and even the NFL’s brain-trauma research, according to ESPN.
