Repeal Christopher Columbus Day

Stop the celebration of Christopher Columbus as a national holiday. Instead, let's observe the struggles of the indigenous people of our nation.

Why is this important?

Christopher Columbus should not be celebrated as a national hero. We are doing the indigenous people of our nation an injustice by observing this holiday as is.

Reasons for signing

  • Celebrating Columbus Day is celebrating the mass murder of multiple tribes of Native Americans
  • I'm tired of hearing I'm not sorry about being sorry. You have a bunch of people who are never apologetic for theft, murder...you name it...and perpetually think it's okay to feel no guilt so long as the injury caused never affected them...there is no glory is such wickedness...it's absurd!
  • Hey, you want to take down statues. Let’s get rid of the holiday.... schools and mail and the government etc can be open another day!
