We the people of New Orleans demand that the Mayor and City Council take immediate action to remove all monuments, school names and street signs dedicated to White Supremacists. These structures litter our city with visual reminders of the horrid legacy of slavery that terrorized so many of this city's ancestors. They misrepresent our community. We demand the freedom to live in a city where we are not forced to pay taxes for the maintenance of public symbols that demean us and psychologically terrorize us. We demand:
- That the city release a timeline for the immediate removal of the monuments;
- That the city expand the definition from 4 specific monuments to encompass all monuments to White Supremacy;
- That the city develop a community driven process for the removal of the monuments and the choosing of their replacements.
