A Northern California grassroots campaign to end the use of the racial slur as the mascot and name of the NFL team in Washington, D.C. will be re-launched November 23rd at 10:00 AM. The campaign calls upon the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell to end the use of the racial epithet and its hurtful reminder of Indigenous peoples ongoing mistreatment. We also aim to develop institutionalized Indigenous oversight with the NFL to promote healing and restorative justice caused by our exploitation.Added to the calendar on Tuesday Oct 21st, 2014 6:31 PM
