The Tucson Roadrunners, the AHL affiliate of the Arizona Coyotes, are selling t-shirts that say “Enough is Enough” and “All for All for All” to raise money for the Hockey Diversity Alliance.

Forward Boko Imama and the organization collaborated to create the shirts that advocate for inclusion. Imama, an assistant captain, was the subject of a racist gesture by San Jose Barracuda forward Krystof Hrabik during a game on Jan. 12.

“The Roadrunners are proud to be support and take pride in all members of our community and advocate that hockey is for everyone and we mean everyone,” Roadrunners President Bob Hoffman said in a statement last week.

The Hockey Diversity Alliance’s purpose is to “eradicate racism and intolerance in hockey.”

It’s functions include funding social justice initiatives, spreading awareness of racism in hockey and creating policies to make the sport more inclusive, according to its website.

Former Coyote Anthony Duclair is a co-founder of HDA.

The shirts are available online and at the Roadrunners Give Back table during games for $25.
