Change The Name Of The Social Circle Redskins

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


In Social Circle, Georgia, the name of all our middle school and high school sports teams is the Social Circle Redskins, and our emblem is a Native American man. Redskins is an offensive term used to describe Native Americans, and has been for decades. With the Washington Redskins working on changing their name, I think if the members of our community came together, we could do the same, and choose another mascot/emblem as well. I want people to feel welcome at our school, regardless of race, and that can't happen with an offensive term being so openly displayed on our schools fields, merchandise, website, and more. Please help us change the name and mascot at our school by signing this petition.
