List of name changes due to the George Floyd protests
After George Floyd, an unarmed African American man, was murdered during a police arrest in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States, many people protested in the United States and internationally. During the course of these protests, many monuments and memorials were vandalized or toppled by protestors, prompting those people who were in charge of other similar monuments to remove them from public view. Similarly, many names, mascots, and other forms of symbolism were changed under direct or indirect public pressure. In other countries, race-related and colonial issues were also raised, and some of them were acted upon. In some cases, changes were already being planned or they had already been under consideration before the outbreak of the protests.

- This committee was the executive committee of the USC Board of Trustees.
- Durham's name was also removed from the building and SVU's web site, and would no longer be used in SVU's publications. SVU administrators had become aware of Durham's views about a week before the renaming, from a social media post in response to a statement condemning racism made by the university roughly a week after the George Floyd protests began.
- Durham was president from 1919 to 1942.

- The trustees had actually approved a recommendation to rename the facility to "William L. Garrett-Ora L. Wildermuth Intramural Center" on February 20, 2009. However, the school announced four days later that it would not implement the change because it lacked support from Garrett's family.
- The committee was formed in order to "establish an official process to rename [Philip] J. Schuyler Achievement Academy, and to evaluate the history behind each district building's name in order to consider other changes as necessary".
- The superintendent was directed to change the name by Sep 8, 2020 and a news release stated that the change was "effective for the 2020–21 school year".

- The vote followed University of Oregon President Michael Schill's recommendation to the board to rename the hall because of Deady's racist views.

- The announcement stated, "For now, the School will be referred to as City's Business School while consultations about a new name are set in motion".

- Over 6,500 suggestions were submitted, with the top five names being West Side Middle School, Katherine Johnson Middle School, Charleston Middle School, Jack Perry Middle School, and Booker T. Washington Middle School.

- The letter was received by the board on July 6, 2020. The school was previously called "William E. Fanning Elementary School", but the board had changed the name on Jan 28, 2019 to "Fanning Academy of Science and Technology" when it tried to "partially defuse the issue".
- His name is "included in list No. 2 of Orange County KKK members", but there was considerable debate over the validity of the list, as seen in the minutes of the board meetings of January 14, 2019 and January 28, 2019.
- Will be renamed in honor of Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams.
- Rice University Professor Raymond L. Johnson had "wr[itten] in [Moore's] teacher profile that Moore once told a black student 'he was welcome to take his course, but that he would start with a C and could only go down from there.'"

- Two blocks of the southeast area of the neighbourhood are actually located in Aurora.
- This can be translated as "Liberty and Human Dignity Square".
- Because the board called an emergency meeting, advocates working on the renaming for years were disappointed at being unable to attend, with one organizer stating that she felt snubbed, and a group of student advocates who wanted the park named for both Frederick Douglass and his wife Anna Murray Douglass were unable to present their request at the meeting.
- Douglas supported expanded slavery in a debate against Abraham Lincoln, and his wife owned at least 100 slaves.
- The commission found no record of the park being formally named by the city after Williams, but acknowledged that it was being referred to with his name, and adopted a resolution rejecting the usage of that name.
- Mohrenstraße is thought to derive its name from black or former slaves, who may have lived there in the early 18th century.

- Change would also propagate to all Dixie-branded products.
