Join CAAR at the Protest Today Against the Use of Native Mascots
CAAR stands in solidarity with the effort to drop the “R” word used for the Washington NFL team. We will see you at this protest TODAY! For those who want to meet up with some friendly faces ahead of time, you can meet up with CAAR members and members of the Don’t Buy Miss Saigon Coalition at 5:00pm in the parking lot of Community-University Health Care Center (2001 Bloomington Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55404). Do not park in the CUHCC lot- however, there should be plenty of nearby street parking. We’ll meet in the corner of the parking lot located at Franklin and Bloomington at 5:00pm, then join the larger group/march across the street at 5:25.
Read about what’s wrong with the name and more about the history of why it’s so offensive. Look at the good example How Media Organizations are Handline the “R**’ Name and publicly announcing they won’t use the name. Journalists and media sources in CAAR’s listserv – consider adding your name/organization to the list.
