    Stop bankrolling Trump’s hate

    Our activism is working. News just broke that Apple, Wells Fargo, Walgreens, Ford, UPS, Motorola and JPMorgan Chase are refusing to legitimize and sanitize Donald Trump’s hate by sponsoring the Republican National Convention (RNC).1, 2

    This massive momentum gives our campaign a huge boost. It ramps up the pressure on corporations which haven’t publicly taken a stand and it further isolates companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter which claim to stand for diversity and inclusion but are using their brands to put a stamp of approval on Trump’s hate.

    Can you help keep the pressure on to get corporations like Google and Facebook to reconsider their decisions and to make sure that any company considering supporting the RNC backs away?

    Tell corporations: No stamp of approval for Trump’s hate.

    CREDO activists have been working with our friends at ColorOfChange, as well as with other progressive allies, to pressure corporations to disassociate their brands from the RNC and Trump’s hate. But while there are reports that other corporations are becoming increasingly nervous about sponsoring a Trump-led convention, other companies, like Google, Facebook and Twitter, have decided to put their stamps of approval on Trump’s divisive and bigoted platform.3, 4

    It is irresponsible and dangerous for corporations like Google and Facebook to promote Trump’s hate by sponsoring the Republican convention. The platform they will be funding and helping to champion includes:

    • Trump’s characterization of Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals; Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims, including U.S. citizens, from entering the United States;
    • Trump’s rhetoric encouraging his supporters to target protesters at his rallies with violence and his justification and endorsement of the violence his supporters commit;
    • Trump’s consistent misogyny and his commitment to end abortion access for women, and
    • Trump’s threat that there will be riots if he gets the most votes but does not win the Republican nomination.

    We need to keep reminding these companies that corporate sponsorship of Trump’s coronation is irresponsible and dangerous, and will give Trump a stamp of approval that will help sanitize and normalize his dangerous, bigoted, hateful rhetoric. Can you add your voice today?

    Tell corporations: Pledge not to sponsor a Trump-led Republican convention.

    CNN has reported that a number of high profile Republican politicians are considering skipping the convention because they're “fearful of a potential melee in Cleveland this summer.”5 If the Republican convention is too divisive and violent for Republican leaders to show up, then there is no reason corporations should be sponsoring it.

    Now is the right time to make clear that companies have a choice: either stand up for diversity and inclusion and back away from Trump’s hate, or publicly align their brands with Trump’s toxic candidacy. We know that corporate leaders won’t act unless they know that hundreds of thousands of people expect them to do the right thing. Can you help increase the pressure today?

    Tell corporations: Pledge not to sponsor a Trump-led Republican convention.

    Thanks for standing up to Trump’s racism, misogyny and xenophobia.
