This petition had 7,626 supporters


Please sign this petition in support of the Hey Reb mascot and the use of the words Rebel/Rebels/Runnin’ Rebels and every variation as it relates to University of Nevada Las Vegas and it’s athletic department. This group also requests the Hey Reb statue be returned to the UNLV campus. 

This is a non-partisan group that stands in support of the Hey Reb mascot and the use of the word Rebel/Rebels/Runnin’ Rebels and every variation as it relates to University of Nevada Las Vegas and it’s athletic department.

The Hey Reb mascot is defined as a rebel and a mountain man. A westerner, a pathfinder, and a rugged individual.

This group recognizes this rugged mountain man as an integral part of Las Vegas and University history and bands together and requests his statue to be returned to the UNLV campus, and Hey Reb and the Rebels remain a part of UNLV now and in the future.

The group denounces UNLV ties to Beauregard or former confederate ties. Although unintentional in intent, those original depictions are no longer used and rightfully removed
