Arizona to Rally Against Native Mascots
What: Local group, Arizona to Rally Against Native Mascots (AZ Rally) will host an upcoming March & Rally Against Racist Mascots. The march and rally calls for the immediate retirement of the Washington NFL team’s racist name and logo. The term “redskin” is a dictionary-defined racial slur rooted in the attempted genocide of Indigenous people. The use of the term today further dehumanizes Indigenous people and allows for the current and continued human and civil rights violations against Indigenous communities across the United States. Az Rally urges everyone to stand in solidarity with the Not Your Mascot movement to end the use of the Washington team’s mascot and all racist mascots.
