Take Down ALL Symbols of White Supremacy in New Orleans
Take Down ALL Symbols of White Supremacy in New Orleans

We the people of New Orleans demand that the Mayor and City Council take immediate action to remove all monuments, school names and street signs dedicated to White Supremacists. We demand that the state legislature cease and desist creating laws that protect these white supremacist symbols. These structures litter our city with visual reminders of the horrid legacy of slavery that terrorized so many of this city's ancestors. They misrepresent our community. We demand the freedom to live in a city where we are not forced to pay taxes for the maintenance of public symbols that demean us and psychologically terrorize us.
