July 2020 Action Alert
Letters have been issued by the Chappaquiddick Tribe of the Wampanoag Nation, Herring Pond Wampanoag Tribe/Nation, and Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe to call for a prohibition on all Native American sport team mascots, logos, and nicknames in Massachusetts public schools:
Take action today to support both the bill to ban Native American mascots in MA and the bill to change the State Flag and Seal!
We are working to support legislation currently before the Massachusetts State Legislature that will benefit Indigenous Peoples.
Our current Agenda includes five bills in the 2019-2021 session that reflect some of the key concerns within Massachusetts.
From time to time, we will also ask supporters to lend a hand with other legislation in the region and nationally.
These are the bills we are supporting in the 2019-2020 MA legislative session
Contact the Legislature now to urge them to give a favorable recommendation for the MA Indigenous Legislative Agenda.
- Write to the Committee chairs and your district’s legislators and ask them to support all 5 bills.
- Sign up for our mailing list so that you can receive updates.
- Endorse our efforts. You can endorse as an individual with your organization listed for identification purposes, or get your organization to endorse directly.
