Retire the Portland Winterhawks "Indian Head" Logo

Retire the Portland Winterhawks "Indian Head" Logo

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


The Portland Winterhawks have long used the logo of a Native Indian mascot on their jerseys and branding.  Just this past February, they created with Adidas an alternate logo/crest they are promoting as a third jersey option. With this new design, the organization has created jerseys and branding with a anti-racist design while keeping the name and spirit of the Portland Winterhawks.

There is no justifiable reason to continue to use antiquated and racially offensive branding to promote this sports team.  The requests for this petition are simple:

1. There should be no "third" option, this new Adidas-designed logo should be the primary and ONLY option that is for sale.  A compromise of not creating new merchandise with the former logo would be acceptable. 

2. The Portland Winterhawks should immediately update their social media branding and update their website with the new designs to encourage the use and adoption of their new crest.  No new media collateral should use the retired logo. 

3. The Portland Winterhawks Skating Center must update their branding to reflect the new logo. 

4. Sponsors of the Portland Winterhawks should cease the use of the former logo and should not create any new materials promoting the Winterhawks with the former logo.
