The NBA and the National Basketball Players Association have agreed to a list of 29 social justice messages that players can display on their jerseys during the upcoming restart of the basketball season.

Each player may opt to include one of the approved messages on his jersey in place of his last name. One option is for the player to display the message for the first four days of the restart, and then switch back to displaying his last name.

Players who wish to continue to display a social justice message past the initial four days will have their last names printed on their jerseys, beneath the number, after the four days pass.

According to information obtained by ESPN, the agreed upon messages are:

Black Lives Matter; Say Their Names; Vote; I Can't Breathe; Justice; Peace; Equality; Freedom; Enough; Power to the People; Justice Now; Say Her Name; Sí Se Puede (Yes We Can); Liberation; See Us; Hear Us; Respect Us; Love Us; Listen; Listen to Us; Stand Up; Ally; Anti-Racist; I Am A Man; Speak Up; How Many More; Group Economics; Education Reform; and Mentor.
