A new women’s professional soccer team is coming to LA in 2022 – Angel City FC! We sat down with Founder and President Julie Uhrman to learn more about their social impact. The team is founded by Academy Award-winning actress and activist Natalie Portman, technology venture capitalist Kara Nortman, media and gaming entrepreneur Julie Uhrman. Uhrman’s team found out early on that the number one reason young women stop playing sports is because they can’t afford a sports bra. Thus, they’ve partnered with Nike and for every seat deposit made – up to 22,000 – Nike will donate a sports bra to young female athletes as part of their mission to help them fulfill their athletic dreams.
