This is the letter we'll send to CEOs on Trump's Business Council on your behalf:
Tell CEOs on Trump's Business Council to #QuitTheCouncil now!
CEOs of Disney, Pepsi, and Tesla are taking verbal stands against the Muslim ban won't formally quit Donald Trump's Business Council. In the wake of Trump's violent policies, sending a tweet or press release is not enough--these CEOs must #QuitTheCouncil now and reject Trump's anti-human, anti-American administration now!
Within the first weeks of Trump's presidency, he passed an unconstitutional and violent executive order which banned citizens of primarily Muslim countries from entering America. During the first few days of his Muslim ban, over 700 people were wrongfully detained.
This is not about politics. It’s not about Democrats and Republicans, or the political left and right. Trump is separating children from their mothers and depriving families of food in an effort harm Muslim families in this country. His violent rhetoric and actions are bringing real life consequences for vulnerable families. No more!
Tell CEOs to #QuitTheCouncil now!
Here is the Petition:
Dear CEOs,We are calling on you to quit Donald Trump’s Business Council. Any cooperation with Donald Trump on business matters or otherwise, will be an endorsement of his recent Muslim ban and hate-filled and racist rhetoric which runs counter to the family-friendly values of your company. We believe that it is in your best interest to quit the Business Council before you and your company are indelibly sullied with the hateful and divisive actions of the Trump administration.
Donald Trump ran a Presidential campaign based on repeatedly disparaging Latino, Muslim, and Black communities as well as women and people with disabilities with his hate speech, misogyny, anti-Muslim bigotry, and racism. And already, he has bested himself with his hateful actions in the Presidential office. Within the first weeks of his presidency, he has passed a series of executive orders targeting vulnerable populations. During his Muslim ban implementation, over 700 people were wrongfully detained.
As a company that prides itself on championing diversity and family values, we believe it is a great sign of corporate responsibility and decency for your company to ensure that your participation on the Business Council is not interpreted as an endorsement of these depraved tactics.Sincerely,
