Change South Dixie Highways to Harriett Tubman Highway

Change South Dixie Highways to Harriett Tubman Highway

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

We hereby petition our Miami- Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners to move with urgency and immediately change signs on U.S. 1 from “Dixie” Highway to Harriett Tubman Highway. 

Whereas: in 2020, Miami- Dade’s main artery, from one end of the County to the other, is still named “Dixie Highway”. Why do we still “honor” the Treasonous Confederacy, slavery, and “The Land of Dixie”? 

WE believe this is shameful, hurtful, disgusting, and completely unacceptable. 

WE applaud the BCC’s unanimous approval of Commissioner Dennis Moss’ Resolution to pass this name change in February of 2020. 

WE, also point to Mayor Muriel Bowser’s overnight renaming of Pennsylvania Avenue in D.C. to “Black Lives Matter Plaza”. Her leadership proves that where there is a will, there is a way. 

WE THEREFORE: Call upon you to do the right thing. The time to act is NOW!
