Target's dangerous dressing and bathroom policy poses a threat to women and children. Over 1 million people agree with us and have signed the pledge to boycott Target stores until protecting women and children is a priority.

Yesterday afternoon, with your boycott pledge in hand, I personally delivered it to Target headquarters in Minneapolis, MN. I met face-to-face with Target executives and spoke to them on your behalf, urging them to end this boycott by protecting women and children in their stores.

I offered a common-sense approach and a reasonable solution to the issue of transgendered customers: a unisex bathroom. Target should keep separate facilities for men and women, but for the trans community and for those who simply like using the bathroom alone, a single occupancy unisex option should be provided.

Target representatives were gracious and respectful, but sadly, they rejected our offer. They repeated what Target CEO and Chairman Brian Cornell said yesterday during an interview on CNBC, "We're going to continue to embrace our belief in diversity and inclusion…," code-words for sticking with its dangerous policy of allowing men use women's dressing and bathrooms.

For that reason, I will work even harder to promote the boycott going forward...and I need your help to reach TWO MILLION boycott signatures.

An anonymous donor has pledged $50,000 to help us reach that goal. Could you add a small donation of just $5.00 to help reach more people who have not heard about the boycott?

1. Forward this email to your friends and family and urge them to join the boycott. 

2. Show your financial support today with a tax-deductible gift of just $5.00.

3. Print the paper petition and distribute it at Sunday school and church.

4. Call Target and let them know how much money they are losing. Call your nearest Target store and tell the manager that you are boycotting the store until Target protects women and children. Please be firm, but polite when you call. Find the phone number of Target stores in your area here.
