The campaign will call residents of the Washingon, D.C. metro area and play a prerecorded message from two Washington fans.
"We represent America’s capital; and it’s time we demonstrate our commitment to the ideals of equality and civility," Washington fan Josh Silver says. "Without the name, it’s still D.C. football... You can stay a true fan, and also recognize the need for a mascot that doesn’t alienate and offend."
The other fan on the call is Ian Washburn, who was also featured in a Washington Post article in September.
The call asks people to send letters to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and to Anna Isaacson, the league's VP of social responsibility.
