About Us

We are Washington fans.  We love our team.  We believe the name and mascot need to change.

Like many of you who are taking the time to read this site, we are enormous fans of the National Football League. We’re from the Washington, DC area. We’ve rooted for the Washington football team our entire lives. We’ve held season tickets, tailgated at RFK and FedEx Fields, and proudly worn our Monk, Cooley and Taylor jerseys on Game Day.

Sign the Petition

Whatever team you root for, Dan Snyder, Roger Goodell, the NFL and its sponsors need to hear from fans like us!

Sign the petition, and share your email with us to learn more about what else Fans for a New Tradition has in store.

Dear Dan Snyder, Commissioner Goodell and other NFL leaders:

As fans of NFL teams, we demand you take immediate action to change the name of the Washington NFL franchise. 

Mr. Snyder – as team owner, the authority and responsibility to initiate this process begins with you.  The name of the team in our nation’s capital should aspire to evoke the best of our country’s heritage, not the worst.

Commissioner Goodell and NFL owners – the leaders of the NFL should not continue to tolerate a franchise using an offensive racial slur as a team name.  As influential decision-makers, we call on you to lead in this effort, privately and publicly, and do everything within your power to bring this issue to a just resolution.
