George Weaver and Charisse Bremond Weaver

The Chargers and Chargers Impact Fund are proud to nominate George Weaver and Charisse Bremond Weaver as the team's inaugural Inspire Change Changemaker Award recipients. Dedicated and active civic leaders in the Los Angeles community, Charisse and George are deserving and worthy of this award for the work they do with the Brotherhood Crusade – a nonprofit incorporated over 50 years ago by Charisse's father Walter Bremond Jr. Brotherhood Crusade's mission is "to remove and/or help individuals overcome the barriers that deter their pursuit of success in life and facilitate opportunities for a better quality of life by … facilitating academic success, promoting personal, social & economic growth ... increasing financial literacy and building community agencies & institutions."

Charisse Bremond Weaver, President and CEO of the Brotherhood Crusade and George Weaver, Trauma-Informed Youth Development Career Readiness Instructor, are a husband-and-wife team dedicated to the work of their organization but, most importantly, the youth and people of South Los Angeles. As daughter of Brotherhood Crusade's founder, Charisse has seen the rise of the organization from the beginning to present day. This pair has devoted their life to the mission and work of Brotherhood Crusade and the Angelenos they serve.

Among the most respected social justice nonprofits in Los Angeles, there are few organizations that lead with such authority as Brotherhood Crusade. The Alliance—a partnership between all 12 professional sports teams in Los Angeles to address the Play Equity movement and belief that sport can affect social change—chose Brotherhood Crusade to host and assist in the coordination and programming of The Alliance Unity March & Dialogue in 2021 and 2022. The LA Sentinel writes that, "The Brotherhood Crusade ... has been key in developing the curriculum for The Alliance Youth Empowerment Program for student-athletes in local high schools. Student-athletes... learned about advocacy, leadership, and systemic inequalities that affect their communities."
