Change the name of Turner Ashby High School in Bridgewater Va

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!


PREFACE: please comment the city and/or state you are located in so we can see what the range of people signing are from.

The Rockingham Bridgewater and Harrisonburg area is set on progressing in their racial equity through the beautiful diversity that exists within it. However, many important buildings have names that reflect a more regressive way of life reminding our area of a time when the white community fought to keep those of racial diversity down and in slavery. This should no longer be acceptable and needs to change. Sign the petition so we can hope to make some change in our area and get it to the school board. 

PLEASE NOTE: if you sign this petition in opposition, your name will be counted in those who approve this change. It cannot be differentiated in the petition when it is submitted. Please stop signing it and then commenting that you are against. 

UPDATE: please sign this petition below to remove the Turner Ashby in Harrisonburg as well.
