Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Deb Haaland (NM-01), Co-Chair of the Congressional Native American Caucus, released the following statement after the Washington NFL team announced that it will review their name:

“It shouldn’t take a huge social movement for a national football team to change their racist name, but the owner of the Washington NFL team dug his heels in and has only agreed to review the name. Though this is a positive step, we won’t stop until the racist name and mascot have changed.”
