Show Notes

Good morning, and happy Thursday! This newsletter is not about Taylor Swift. But it seems like she’s continuing her trend of making dating decisions that spark conversations about race, justice, and respect. Today’s newsletter highlights efforts to change racist stereotypes in sports, and was written by the team at IllumiNative, a Native women-led organization. Their mission is to build power for Native peoples by amplifying contemporary Native voices, stories, and issues to advance justice, equity, and self-determination.   

TAKE ACTION

  • Support and uplift Indigenous organizers who are impacted by racist sports mascots, including Not in Our Honor’s petition.
  • Share resources from the IllumiNative campaign and encourage sports teams to change their names.
  • Educate friends, family, and loved ones on the true history of Native mascots, their harm, and why they need to end.
