WI Indian Educators and their allies are working for the elimination of race-based Indian nicknames, logos and mascots from WI public schools. Their work includes providing education to k-12 school board members, administrators, social studies and history teachers, and community members providing the rationale for change and assist in complaints that have been filed. They will work to defend Act 250 from constitutional challenges and legislative attempts to amend or appeal the law.
