The Milwaukee Bucks are helping lead a community initiative across the country between incarcerated individuals, NBA players, and coaches.

It's all part of the 'Represent Justice' campaign.

Bucks players will serve as coaches for a basketball game inside a correctional facility. The campaign, first reported by The Undefeated, looks to break the stigma of incarcerated individuals and others who have been impacted by the criminal justice system.

At the Bucks event later this December, the undefeated reports Nike will also donate shoes to the incarcerated players and other participants. Bucks guards Sterling Brown and George Hill will be at the game.

The Sacramento Kings are hosting the first 'Play for Justice' game this season. Both the Kings and Bucks will hold a joint event Feb. 10.
