Reconsider Columbus Day
Do you really want to celebrate the legacy of a man who committed heinous crimes against the Indigenous people of the Caribbean and throughout the Americas?
This is not just about history. This is still a relevant issue today.
By honouring Columbus with a federal holiday, our government continues to vehemently insult Native Americans and perpetuates a philosophy of racism and domination.
So please….on October 12th…
Please speak up, take a stand, and help eradicate Columbus’ name from the federal calendar.
Take the day to honor the people who were really here first by petitioning for a nationally recognized Indigenous holiday.
Take the day to pray for those around the world and right here in our own country who are victims of exploitation and racism.
