Converse is incredibly proud and humbled to welcome Natasha Cloud to the family.
The quick guard, known for her relentless creativity on and off the court, most recently contributed to the Washington Mystics’ historic 2019 WNBA Championship run – a first for the organization.
Equally important, Cloud is known for extending her influence through leadership efforts that place emphasis on being a voice for the voiceless, specifically using her platform to speak out against the racial injustices that are killing Black people in America, while also advocating for equality for women and the LGBTQ+ community, and working to guide youth in her communities.
In recent Converse news, the brand pledged $40 million over four years to the black community through its parent company, Nike.

“The biggest thing is for me to use my platform as a microphone. That’s the goal, be a voice for the voiceless.” – @t__cloud9. Natasha Cloud most recently shared a powerful piece on @playerstribune (link in bio to read it) against the racial injustices that are affecting Black people in America, and then took to the streets of Philly to demand that message be heard. This is one of many reasons we are both proud and humbled to welcome WNBA champion @t__cloud9 to the family.
