Google, Walmart, Twitter, Apple, and Facebook plan to give millions to supportTrump’s Republican National Convention — sponsoring his brand of hate.
Every election, big corporations fund the GOP and DNC national conventions. This year, if corporations fund the Republican Convention, they'll be supporting Donald Trump and everything racist, sexist, anti-Muslim, and anti-immigration that he stands for.
Some companies, like Microsoft and Coca-Cola, have already dropped their financial support because of pressure from Presente, ColorOfChange, UltraViolet, CREDO Action, Million Hoodies, America's Voice, and other allies. Now, you can increase the pressure on those that are refusing to leave or are undecided.
Trump is encouraging violence towards our communities in an effort to win favor with some voters’ most fearful and angry instincts. Trump’s stereotypical and violent rhetoric brings real life or death consequences for our people. As long as companies keep financing platforms for Trump to push his racist message, the number of violent attacks against us will escalate.
We cannot let corporations we use everyday, like Google, Walmart, Twitter, Apple, and Facebook, validate Trump's hate. Leaders in the business community can make a commitment to refrain from sponsoring a Donald Trump-led Republican National Convention. But they will only stop fueling Trump’s demagoguery and intolerance if they hear from us.
Tell companies to stop supporting hate speech.
