First, let me thank you for supporting the #BoycottTarget campaign and giving me the opportunity to return to Target and meet again with Target executives.
Today, I will deliver another 500,000 #BoycottTarget signatures to Target headquarters in Minneapolis and briefly meet with Target executives about the retailer’s misguided restroom and fitting room policy that puts women and children at risk.
Last spring, AFA delivered the first one million signatures to Target leaders, who politely but passively listened to AFA’s concerns over the policy. The 12 months since the policy announcement—and since #BoycottTarget began—have seen falling revenues and plummeting stock prices for the corporation.
After AFA’s delivery of the first million signatures last year, Target stated it would add single-stall restrooms in stores not already equipped with them, but has otherwise not altered the policy. I am just as resolved today as I was a year ago…Target’s policy must change.
As I meet with Target today, would you pray that our efforts will bear fruit? Specifically, please pray that Target's CEO Brian Cornell will have a change of heart and realize his company’s policy puts women and children at risk.
AFA is urging those who want to join the 1.5 million who have already signed the #BoycottTarget pledge to take action in several ways:
- Make a comment on Target's Facebook page here.
- Share this tweet on Twitter:
Hey @Target, men don’t belong in women’s restrooms and changing areas. #BoycottTarget http://bit.ly/2q3wUnJ
- Call your local manager and politely remind them that you are still boycotting Target. Find local Target store numbers here.
