Washington Redskins launch ad campaign to defend team name

The Washington Redskins are launching a new campaign to defend the team's name.

The Washington Redskins are launching a new campaign to defend the team's name.

The new ad is called "Redskins is a Powerful Name." It features members of different Native American tribes and communities who say the name "uplifts" and reminds them of their "cultural background and heritage."

They also claim there are bigger issues facing Native Americans to worry about.

The ad is featured on redskinfacts.com, a website the team launched last month to defend its logo and name.

The ad comes as pressure mounts for the NFL team to change its name.
