Dear MoveOn member,
The American Family Association, an ultra-right-wing hate group, is attacking Target for adopting a non-discriminatory bathroom policy that keeps transgender customers safe from harassment. More than half a million people have pledged to boycott Target until Target repeals this much-needed policy.1 We must speak louder than this hate. Can you join me in pledging to stand with Target in support of transgender rights? Click here to sign the petition, which says:
Target recently posted on its blog, "We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity... Everyone deserves to feel like they belong."2
We need to stand up for transgender people and stand up for those who support transgender people. The AFA pledge to boycott Target currently has over 600,000 signatures. Let us show Target that we stand with them for fair treatment of all of our citizens.
As the late Senator Paul Wellstone said, "we all do better when we all do better."
