Jenna Bauch started this petition to City of Waterloo

In signing this petiton we encourage you to please pledge your support towards the cause of changing the Waterloo Police Department logo. The current logo of a griffin resembles all too well the KKK dragon. This symbol has caused a sense of fear, pointed hatred, and bigotry to people of color all throughout Waterloo for generations. The people of the community have spoken out against this symbol to no avail.  We ask that you simply sign our petition to show support to have the griffin removed with a symbol that is more inclusive towards the entire community or to have no symbol at all. 

Every citizen of Waterloo deserves to feel safe and respected throughout the community. The continued use of this hatred resembling symbol denies that sense of security and mutual respect that every person in the community has a right to have.


We also encourage people to write letters against this long standing symbol. In these letters we ask that you discuss why the logo needs to be changed or if there should even be a logo at all and send them to  abraham.funchess@waterloo-ia.org with “Griffin Logo, LWProject” in the subject line. We ask that if you choose to write a letter that they are 500 words or less. We appreciate any and all support you choose to give. Thank you.
