Washington Redskins: It's Time to Change the Name

To be delivered to Daniel Snyder, Owner, Washington Redskins

Petition Statement

Change the derogatory name of the Washington football team.
There are currently 7,207 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

The name "Washington Redskins" is racially derogatory and has no place in today's culture. For decades, Native Americans have asked the team to choose a different name, and in recent months the movement has gained momentum as major media outlets like the San Francisco Chronicle and Slate Magazine (owned by The Washington Post Company) have decided to stop using the term, as has award-winning Sports Illustrated NFL writer Peter King. Now is the time.
