The Purdue football team will make an off the field statement about social justice through new shirts that were revealed on Friday by the university.
The black shirts have the message of “No Fear. All Love” emblazoned on them:

Purdue believes the phrase is the best description of what their community and nation should aspire to.
“We came [to the meetings] with the idea that ‘no fear all love’ is the perfect way to say what we need this year as a society, and as a team, too,” Offensive lineman Grant Hermanns said.
Equality and fair treatment for all Americans is the statement intended by the shirts.
“We wanted to promote the opportunity for an inclusive environment – the same environment we continue to advocate in favor of our student-athletes, coaches and staff,” Assistant athletics director of student-athlete development Peyton Stovall said.
The shirts will be worn for the first time in Week 2. Purdue will try to rise to 2-0 on the season when they square off with host Illinois on Saturday (11 a.m. CST/Big Ten Network).
