Eradicating Offensive Native Mascotry, a group of Native parents and their allies have created a Change.org petition calling for the end of the use of racial slurs and racist mascots in sports.
Hi, everyone - I have been tweeting about this over the past couple of days, but, if not everyone saw it, or, you didn’t get an email, there is one full day left to get signatures. I hope you will consider signing onto this letter put out by the EONM -a wonderful organization I have recently learned about- hoping to deliver this to the NCAI (National Congress of American Indians) for its Winter Executive Session in Washington, DC.
There are a lot more signatures needed for this small stretch-run of time left, so, if you would, consider re-posting this. Let’s fill this with signatures. It isn’t impossible by any means! Thank you, kindly!
