A Multi-Decade Engagement: The Changing of the Washington NFL Team Name and Logo

On July 13, 2020, the Washington football team announced it was retiring its name, mascot and logo. The change is a direct result from engagement with sponsors and shareholders as well as decades of Native-led advocacy.

Trillium and fellow Investors & Indigenous Peoples Working Group (IIPWG) members had been collaborating on this issue for years. They collectively engaged with sponsors of the Washington D.C. NFL Football team to drive this change on June 14, 2020. In late June 2020, steered by IIPWG, these engagements culminated in letters to FedEx, Nike, and Pepsi from over 80 investors representing over $620 billion in assets asking the companies to cease their relationships with the team if it continued to use its current name and logo – ultimately driving the decision to change the name.
