Diab, who was honored in Paper Magazine for her involvement in the Know Your Rights Camp, is a well-known radio and television personality.
Recognized as one of the co-founders for the Know Your Rights Camp, Diab worked alongside Kaepernick to establish the organization in 2016.
The Know Your Rights Camp, based loosely on the Black Panther Party’s 10 Point Program, established its own 10 principles of protections to educate and empower communities of color. One of the principles includes, “You have the right to be loved.”
During the interview with Paper, Diab described the meaning behind the principle.
“It's important that we show love to people that we care about because it reminds them of their worth, their greatness and their strength, even when they don't feel strong," she told Paper.
The 10 principles of protections emphasized by the Know Your Rights Camp also include:
1. You have the right to be free.
2. You have the right to be healthy.
3. You have the right to be brilliant.
4. You have the right to be safe.
5. You have the right to be loved.
6. You have the right to be courageous.
7. You have the right to be alive.
8. You have the right to be trusted.
9. You have the right to be educated.
10. You have the right to know your rights.
The profile in Paper also featured other prominent figures in the community including Eric Reid, who embodied “the right to be courageous,” Angela Davis, who represented “the right to be brilliant” and Indya Moore, who personified “the right to be alive.”
Diab has been vocal in her criticism of the deal between Jay-Z and the NFL. As previously reported by Blavity, Diab took to Twitter to defend her boyfriend against rumors regarding the Roc Nation and NFL deal.
Kaepernick's attorney, Mark Geragos, has also been vocal in his disapproval of the deal saying it was "cold-blooded."
