Nessa has been involved in activism long before her association with Kaepernick. Over the years, Nessa has been involved with different organizations in New York that work for women’s empowerment. Nessa also founded the Know Your Rights Camp with Colin Kaepernick and the organization expanded its reach with funds for COVID-19.
Nessa is also not scared to call out prominent celebrities. When Jay-Z came out on national television saying that it was time that they moved from the kneeling phase to action, Nessa was having none of it.
“I don’t mind you doing a business deal — but I do mind you wrapping it in social justice when you’re working with an organization that denies someone an opportunity. Jay has phenomenal music, he’s done so much nobody’s taking that away from him! Do your business! But don’t talk to me about that league when they’re doing dishonorable things. This person working with this league wore Colin’s Jersey — but some people don’t understand what’s going on.”
Nessa even called out NFL when they listed Colin Kaepernick as retired on their website. She tweeted a screenshot of the player’s profile on their website with a caption that read,
“Colin did NOT retire. You cowards blackballed him [because] he peacefully protested against police brutality. He’s a Super Bowl QB [and] should be playing [because] his stats show that.”
Nessa is currently in a relationship with NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and the two have been outspoken about their support for social justice causes, including the fight against police brutality and racial inequality. The pair have been together since 2015 however they are yet to get married. In the years as a couple, the pair has given birth to one child who was born in August 2022.
A quick write on her partner-Colin Kaepernick:
Colin Kaepernick is a former American football quarterback and civil rights activist. He was born on November 3, 1987, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and was adopted and raised by a white family in Turlock, California.
Kaepernick played college football at the University of Nevada and was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He spent six seasons with the 49ers, leading them to their first Super Bowl appearance since 1994 in 2013, before becoming a free agent in 2017.
In 2016, Kaepernick gained national attention for his protests during the national anthem before NFL games. He began kneeling during the anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality in the United States. His actions sparked a national conversation and ignited a movement across the sports world, with many other athletes joining in the protest.
