The Harm of Native Mascots: Education into Action

The Harm of Native Mascots: Education into Action

Join us for a discussion led by Josh Hunt, Vice Chair of the Committee of 500 Years of Dignity & Resistance, who is Southern Cheyenne, an enrolled member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma. Josh will lay out the reasons for banning the use of Native American mascots, nicknames, and logos in all sports.
We will also prepare for the upcoming Opening Day demonstration against the Cleveland baseball team, and discuss how we can best show up in solidarity to support the movement to change the offensive team name. Never been to a demonstration? This is a great time to hear from people who have, and learn best practices for following the leadership of People of Color when participating in collective action.

Hosted by SURJ NEO - Showing Up for Racial Justice Northeast Ohio
