When I was an undergrad at SUNY Stony Brook, one of the residence halls was named Sanger. While reading your post, I checked to see if Sanger College was still there. Lo and behold, there's a current petition to rename Sanger due to, among other things, Margaret Sanger's advocacy of sterilization of the disabled and "genetically unfit", and her eugenics views, linked to forced sterilization of thousands of mostly women of color. (The most recent news I could find on this is from May 2022). At best, it feels to me like an inappropriate time to do this.
