As part of the team's #TogetherBlue campaign, the Giants have partnered with organizations with a focus toward racial injustice, criminal justice reform, education and economic advancement, police-community relations and voter registration.

Giants players and coaches have split themselves into nine teams and each team has paired with an organization in a dedicated region within New York and New Jersey. After several conversations regarding the issues that most affect the residents of those areas, the teams selected initiatives and will work alongside their community partner.
