Undermining Hate: Solidarity for the Worth and Dignity of All
The racial hatred and violence in Charlottesville—and the Trump Administration’s false equivalence of white supremacists and those who oppose them—demand a response in the name of worth and dignity for all. Color of Change, the nation’s largest online racial justice organization, has two petitions targeting key groups which are both sensitive to public pressure and in a position to undermine support for such blatant white supremacism:
1. Payment processing companies like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover process funds (and profit from doing so) for white supremacist groups, including the groups behind the racial terrorism in Charlottesville.
- Click here to sign the petition to credit card companies demanding that they stop providing financial services to hate groups.
- CEO’s of dozens of major companies like IBM, Dell, Pepsi and Campbell’s Soup continue to sit on Trump’s business councils after others have courageously and conscientiously resigned in the wake of his appalling response to violent white supremacism.
- Click here to sign the petition calling on business leaders to dissociate themselves from Trump’s business councils.
