To do our part to help keep our Milwaukee community safe and healthy, the Brewcity Bruisers are canceling our May 30th triple header at UWM Panther Arena.

We are so sorry to miss an opportunity to play the sport we love, but even more so, the chance to connect with the Milwaukee community. We look forward to the time when we can once again invite you to enjoy an exciting, family-friendly night of roller derby!

Our league is also being impacted by the sports shutdown. As a volunteer-run nonprofit, we are funded by attendance at our games. If you are able to donate the cost of a ticket (or any amount), we would be grateful. You can make a tax-deductible donation by clicking below to donate. We’re cooking up a special way to recognize those who add a drop in the bucket to help us stay afloat!

While we can’t get together with you, remember to keep an eye on our Facebook page. We’re finding creative ways to fill the hole that no derby has left in our lives while practicing good protective habits and social distancing! We’d love to hear about what you’re doing too. Thank you for your support of the Brewcity Bruisers, Milwaukee’s hometown roller derby league!

Official BCB Statement - 6/3/2020

The Brewcity Bruisers firmly believe that we must be vocally anti-racist, and we are calling on our league members, fans, and the roller derby community as a whole to take action and join us as we listen, learn, educate, and work toward becoming better allies.

BCB denounces the unequal treatment, violence, and blatant disregard for Black lives. We recognize that there needs to be mass reform within our police force and criminal justice system, and that white privilege and systemic racism can be found within every American institution, including roller derby.

The BCB Board of Directors promises to examine how white supremacy and systemic racism has molded our sport and how our policies and procedures may perpetuate this racism and exclusivity. We not only stand in solidarity with the Black community, but also commit to address and correct any implicit bias within our own organization. We pledge to support, make space for, and listen to Black voices.

We ask that everyone, especially white people, use this time to learn about the American history of systemic racism, to have those difficult conversations with friends and family, and to support Black-owned businesses and organizations.

We all have a part to play in fixing this. Take a look at the educational resources below and find out more about local and national organizations who need your support, especially in these times.
