I pledge to vote (1) FOR renaming our community to something we can be proud of, (2) AGAINST a special assessment, (3) AGAINST an amendment to change this renaming process in the MCA’s Community Declarations.
In 2001, people of color and their allies began to explain how personally hurtful it is that the place where their families live continues to honor a Klansman through its name. Local organizations have dropped the name, and most recently, in May, DSST removed the name from its school and renamed itself DSST Montview. Let’s build on their work, begun by our neighbors and continued by our children: to make a principled decision about whom we honor with our community name.
