Former Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake Has a Brand-new Role

Former Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has a new role as the executive director of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) Foundation.

NBPA is the union that ensures the rights of NBA players are protected and that active steps are taken to assist players in achieving goals, both on and off the court. As an extension of the association, the NBPA Foundation provides funding and support to highlight the work players do to build up their communities and create positive change across the world.

Effective immediately, Rawlings-Blake will replace Lyzz Ogunwo, who has served as the interim executive director of the foundation since January 2022. The role consists of overseeing and directing the foundation’s programs, strategic planning, and executing their mission to advance the global work of NBPA members.
