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.

The American Indian Movement-West, Sacred Sites Protection & Rights of Indigenous Tribes, Eradicating Offensive Native Mascotry, and others are organizing its largest grassroots demonstration in the San Francisco Bay Area. Diversity is welcomed, so join our efforts and become a part of history! Endorsements, organizations, volunteers, carpools, & event attendees are needed.

Rallies and protests will be happening at multiple Washington Team games and are being hosted by numerous grassroots groups and organizations in the following individual areas.

October 27 – Protest @ AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas

November 2 - Rally @ TCF Stadium, Minneapolis, Minnesota
