Not Your Mascots firmly believes that the key to creating change is through the strength of collective action. Your voice and your support is important and there are many ways that you can get involved and help create a new future in which Indigenous people are seen and treated as human beings.
HOW YOU CAN HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE:
Sign or start a petition of your own to call for an end to the use of the R*dskins slur and the misappropriation of Indigenous identity, culture and imagery through Native mascots.
Start a letter writing campaign. You can write to your local school boards, state representatives, and the NFL. If you would like to contact the NFL, address your letters to Roger Goodell and send to NFL Commissioner, 345 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10154.
Use social media to show your support and to help educate others by using the hashtags #changethename, #changethemascot, #notyourmascots, #nohonorinracism, #empowernativevoices
