Demand Change - Sign the petition to remove Columbus Day
Sponsored by Joshua Arce, President & CEO of Partnership With Native Americans.
While we applaud President Biden’s proclamation of October 11 last year as Indigenous Peoples’ Day we must demand a permanent change to this day each year.
Columbus Day was signed into law in 1934 to honor a man who was no hero. Columbus Day must be abolished and replaced with Indigenous Peoples’ Day on a National level permanently. Here’s why:
Columbus Day should be immediately revoked as a Federal holiday and replaced with a National Indigenous Peoples’ Day. This moves us closer to a true U.S. history and acknowledging the wrongs done to the tribes.
Sign this petition, in support of H. R. 5473 and S. 2919 before the 117th Congress, to be shared with Speaker Of The House.
Share this movement to help us get 10,000 signatures by October 13th.
All signatures and submissions between the dates of 12AM CST on September 20, 2022 and 12AM CST on October 13th, 2022 will be collected and mailed to Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, 1236 Longworth H.O.B., Washington, DC 20515 on Monday, October 17, 2022. By entering your information on this petition, you agree to have it sent to Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi in support of our demand for this necessary change.
