NCAI crowdfunding for 2015 #ChangeTheMascot Super Bowl ad

December 19th, 2014 All Day - December 21st, 2014

 Last year, the National Congress of American Indians created a commercial to run during the Super Bowl to explain why the Washington NFL football team name is offensive to Native people. It went viral and raised awareness with millions of YouTube views.

In 2015, you can join this effort by funding a new commercial and digital campaign that aims to be bigger than any other Super Bowl ad campaign this year. NCAI and other Native groups, including NAJA, will continue Indian Country’s decades-long effort to change the mascot and end harmful stereotypes against Native peoples in sports.

Join the effort by Dec. 21 and in return get a great t-shirt that sends a message on its own, to “REPLACE" the derogatory name of the Washington, DC NFL team. To learn more and contribute to the campaign, go to: http://kck.st/1v4dhYS.
