How would you describe the mission of this project to a friend?

A brief history

Schools should be named after role models. My school is named after a person who used racist ideas to steal land, and he opposed ending slavery. We should change the name of my school because James K. Polk is not a person to celebrate.

Where we are today

I have collected over 2,400 signatures and received unanimous support from the student council officers at my school. I am proud to have won the Fresno Center for Nonviolence Youth Way of Peace Award.
