As the month of October rolls on, some consider it a pretty scary time - especially at Target, where a frightening restroom and fitting room policy continues to put women and children's safety at risk.
For a year and a half, AFA has been encouraging shoppers to #BoycottTarget after the retailer publicized it would allow men free and unrestricted access into women's fitting rooms and restrooms. In response, more than 1.5 million shoppers have signed the pledge to boycott Target stores.
While the American Family Association and our values are in line with celebrating harvest-style festivals rather than Halloween, we realize that many American shoppers will be spending a great deal of money this month on decorating, party and treat items.
We hope you will not be shopping at Target!
As we have stated many times, our worries stem from both the real and potential threat that predators and voyeurs, or anyone with evil intentions, would take advantage of the Target bathroom policy to harm women and children - and we have plenty of incidents to show that they have.
AFA has outlined just 10 examples that show why Target should immediately rescind its dangerous policy and keep men out of women's bathrooms and dressing rooms. As long as Target continues to allow men free and unrestricted access into women's dressing rooms and restrooms, these sexual violations against women and little girls will continue to occur.
There are still people you know who are unfamiliar with Target's dangerous policy. Will you help spread the warning and let your family and friends know about the Target boycott?
