Help end harmful stereotypes and race based mascots in Keyport schools

For too long race based “Indian/Native American” mascots have been used for entertainment while Indigenous peoples suffer the consequences. These mascots are insulting, racist and historically inaccurate. Every Native Tribe/Indigenous Nation in New Jersey is against schools using their likeness for mascots. In 2016 I tried to get the Keyport school district to replace the mascot and fell short by just one vote. Now it’s a new day! Sign this petition and let’s hope for more change.

The high school’s Indian mascot is called the Red Raider. The middle school calls themselves the Keyport Indians.
