CNA presents with State Legislators, announce state legislation to BAN Native mascotry in PA schools
Our Coalition of Natives and Allies is making progress toward legislation to end the use of Native American sports mascots in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
With the dynamic leadership of PA State Representative Chris Rabb, his staff and Interns, we had the opportunity to present in a Town Hall on Oct 14th.
Please view this even in two forms:

ACTION AND SUPPORT
We continue to work on NATIVE LAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT with Pennsylvania State Representative Chris Rabb. He is proposing that a land acknowledgment be made at the opening of Congressional Sessions in Pennsylvania State government. CNA members are slowly starting to meet individually and in person with our local representatives, sharing the importance of knowing the true history with Native peoples and supporting Rep. Rabb's Land Acknowledgment initiative.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THIS EFFORT, YOU MIGHT CALL OR WRITE YOUR PA STATE LEGISLATOR TO EXPRESS YOUR SUPPORT FOR SUCH A PROPOSAL.
Thank you so much.
We acknowledge Pennsylvania exists on the tribal lands of the Delaware, Erie, Haudenosaunee, Lenape, Munsee, Shawnee, and Susquehannock.
