On July 9, 2020, four of the Founders of the FFL came together to kick off the first of eight roundtables discussing the foundational values and pillars of the Freedom Football League.

Hosted by Stephanie Rudnick (formerly of the XFL), Ricky Williams, Byron Chamberlain, Bob Vanech, and Darryl Ingram discussed their experiences with systemic racism during their playing days in college and in the NFL, how major sports leagues reinforce these structures, and how the FFL will address systemic racism within its policies and practices to create a new league that puts the player at the center.
