Remove former KKK member Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) name from taxpayer funded projects

Former Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) was a member and recruiter for the hate group Ku Klux Klan (KKK). More than 50 places and areas are named after him which is a disgrace for all people opposed to hate groups. This petition seeks to have all buildings, parks or other places named for KKK hate group member Robert Byrd renamed for more deserving people. Some of the places named after Robert Byrd include: Robert C. Byrd Academic and Technology Center, Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia Robert C.
