Money proposal hurts history, inclusion
This summer, Sacagawea, a true American hero may lose her place on our money. In the next couple of weeks, Congress will vote on House Resolution 3916, which would remove Sacagaweas image from the dollar coin.
As we celebrate the bicentennial of Lewis and Clarks historic journey west (1804-06), we should be thankful we have the image of Sacagawea on our currency, not be trying to remove it. Sacagaweas brave and heroic efforts during the journey are a treasured part of Washington and American history.
Removing Sacagawea would also be a step backward in achieving a more inclusive society. Sacagawea is the only woman and minority featured on our currency currently in wide circulation.
Please call U.S. Rep. Adam Smith at (202) 225-8901 and tell him you want to continue to honor Sacagawea and the Lewis and Clark expedition, and to vote no on HR 3916. Those who own businesses can also show support by giving out the Sacagawea coins as change to their customers.
Lets save this true American hero.
