Ryan Darr publishes op-ed in the Washington Post

Ryan Darr published an opinion piece in the Washington Post on January 7, 2022, entitled “‘Red Wolves’ remains the best choice for the new name for the Washington Football Team.”

In his piece, Ryan writes that “[r]enaming a football team after an endangered native (or once-native) species would be a tiny step in rethinking our relationship to the land, but it would be a step in the right direction.” He adds: “the names of teams in which we are invested — by which we identify ourselves — matter. The Washington Football Team has the opportunity not only to elevate the red wolf but also to make it part of a community’s identity.”

Ryan’s op-ed is available at the Post’s website here.
