Change the Name: Arawak, Ohio, Initial Budget

We can no longer stand promoting a genocidal sex trafficker and living in an area dedicated to his piracy. This movement seeks to change the name of Columbus, Ohio, to Arawak, Ohio for the people, Christopher Columbus, genocided, enslaved and child slave trafficked. Any funds beyond needed to change the name will be used to build community and increase discussion of the continuing caging of human beings for non violent conduct. 

You can change the name today. Ultimately having major places in the city and the general public recognize Arawak, Ohio as no longer a dedication to a monster may take a while and may take require a few different collective actions.
