Why Reconsider Columbus Day?

Why Reconsider Columbus Day?

This is not just about history. This is still a relevant issue today.

By honoring Columbus with a federal holiday, our government continues to vehemently insult Native Americans

and perpetuates a philosophy of racism and domination.

So please....

Please speak up, take a stand, and help eradicate Columbus' name from the federal calendar.

Take time to honor the people who were really here first by petitioning for a nationally recognized Indigenous holiday.

Pray for those around the world and right here in our own

country who are victims of exploitation and racism.
