This afternoon, American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net) President Tim Wildmon hand-delivered another 500,000 #BoycottTarget pledge signatures to Target headquarters in Minneapolis, after which AFA leadership briefly met with Target senior management about the retailer’s dangerous and misguided restroom and fitting room policy that puts women and children at risk.
Last spring, AFA delivered the first 1 million signatures to Target leaders, who politely but passively listened to AFA’s concerns over the policy. The past year since that first meeting has been a dismal one for the retailer, with revenues falling and stock prices plummeting.
“American Family Association is again appreciative that Target representatives were willing to accept the signatures of another 500,000 Americans who are alarmed by this ongoing policy,” Wildmon said. “Yet, even after the retail chain struggled with multiple negative headlines over their sinking sales this past year, Target gave no indication it would make any changes to this policy that is alienating millions of families.”
