Dr. Sarah E. Dennis is helping spearhead a campaign to have Chicago Public Schools change the name of the holiday from Columbus Day to Indigenous People’s Day. Minnesota, Vermont, Alaska, and South Dakota, along with a multitude of cities across the U.S. have already made the change to celebrate Indigenous People’s Day. With this change, we will be honoring the true ancestors and descendants of this land. To join in this effort, you can sign the online petition or learn more about this movement.
