Bulak was awarded by the NBA for his work in defending LGBTQ justice.

DALAS – Dallas Mavericks forward Reggie Bulak has won the Social Justice Champion Award from Karim Abdul-Jabar in 2022, according to Bulak himself.

Bulak posted a picture of the award with his name engraved on it on his Instagram page. He wrote: “It is a great honor to receive this award! My platform is not taken for granted and I will continue to inspire and do what is right for my personalities. ”

He was named a finalist for the award last Monday when the NBA appreciated his impact on the Dallas area, particularly in the LGBTQ community.

The award honors players who have succeeded in fighting for social justice and advocating for equality.

In just its first year at the Mavs, the league said Bulak has helped many organizations such as Abounding Prosperity, Dallas Southern Pride, Black-Te Dinner and the Muhlaysia Booker Foundation, which was founded in honor of a transgender woman who was killed in Dallas.

He also created RemarkaBULL, an organization that provides housing and support to members of the LGBTQ community in need.

The NBA said the 31-year-old’s commitment to LGBT justice was linked to the 2014 murder of his sister, Mia Henderson, who was transgender.

Bulak will now also receive a $ 100,000 donation from the NBA of his chosen organization.

Bulak is only the second player to win a social justice award since its inception in 2021. The first winner was the Los Angeles Lakers striker Carmela Anthony.

Other finalists included Jrou Holliday of the Milwaukee Bucks, Jaren Jackson Jr. of the Memphis Grizzlies, Carl Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves, and Fred VanWhitt of the Toronto Raptors.
