After the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend, the Canadian Football League made a statement by launching their Diversity is Strength campaign and several players were immediately on board.

CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie joined the CFL on TSN before kickoff of Thursday Night Football between the Edmonton Eskimos and Winnipeg Blue Bombers to discuss the campaign, which can be seen at the video above.

Players from all across the league have embraced the Diversity is Strength campaign, and have shown it by rocking the t-shirts for the past few weeks pre-game.

The shirts feature the name of the campaign on the front, with players who represent the diversity of the league covering the back. They are available for sale, with proceeds going to the CFL Alumni Association and Purolator Tackle Hunger. Get a closer look at the shirts below to see all the names featured on the back:
