Athlete Ally uses public awareness campaigns and educational programming to foster inclusive sports communities. Ambassadors work with collegiate, professional, and Olympic athletic programs to combat homophobia and to foster allyship.

The Athlete Ally website houses the Athletic Equality Index to measure LGBTQ inclusion in different athletic spaces, offers helpful Q&A for athletes who want to learn how to be allies, and provides opportunities to take action online with its Petitions page.

Athlete Ally's campus ambassador program provides student athletes with resources to explain the importance of inclusion to their peers and coaches, recruit other athlete allies, and mobilize their athletic community to promote LGBTQ inclusion.
