In light of recent events of the four years under the Trump presidency, culminating with the president's incitement of a failed attempt to violently overturn the results of the 2020 elections to his favor, a fair and free election, which resulted in the deaths of five individuals including a police officer, we find it unconscionable that city property paid by tax payer dollars continue to have the Trump name.

Therefore, we call for the immediate revocation of the Trump's organization contract to run the Trump Golf Links in Throggs Neck as well as renaming the golf course 'Lenape Links' in honor of the indigenous peoples who occupied these lands prior to European colonization.

Why is this important?

What message do we continue to send to the world if we keep the name of a president who not only upholds white supremacy but lead thousands to attack congress in a seditious attempt to overthrow our democracy?

Our elected officials must act now.

We thank Dr Mark Naison for sharing the name Lenape Links with us. 

We would also like to add that any decision making, should the Lenape Links name be utilized, should be done in consultation with the Lenape Nation and a portion of the profits should go to them if the name is utilized.
