Three convincing reasons to boycott Target this Christmas

Dear Jane,

We realize that a great many American shoppers will begin shopping for Christmas this week and especially immediately after Thanksgiving.

Here are three convincing reasons you shouldn’t shop Target this Christmas:

Sexual Predators
Despite Target’s denial that men entering women’s rooms is a problem, the reality remains that it is a major problem. We have the proof.

On October 16, a mother and her children went to a Target in Woburn, Massachusetts, to do some shopping. While inside the store, a man followed the mother’s 10-year-old daughter into the women’s restroom and offered her candy, commented on her clothing, and reportedly tried to get into the stall that the little girl was using.

AFA has documented at least ten other cases in which women and children have been exploited by sexual predators inside Target stores.

Target is hoping you don’t care
Target is hoping you won’t care that they allow men into women’s bathrooms and changing rooms and will do your Christmas shopping with them. AFA knows that you do care.

Stay the course with us
Any company as large as Target can withstand a short-term loss of sales. That’s where Christmas shoppers come in. Target is banking on this Christmas season to turn a huge profit for 2018.

Let’s hold firm to our conviction that men have no place in women’s restrooms and dressing rooms and continue our pledge to boycott Target stores, especially through the Christmas shopping season.

With Target hoping you’ll do your Christmas shopping with them, send them the strongest possible message you can and let Target know, “Don’t Count On Me!”

Will you share this with just one person?

Will you share this with just one person?

Dear Jane,

We are VERY close to reaching the 1.5 million signature goal on the Target boycott. Your help is critical as we approach the one-year anniversary since we launched the boycott.

At the time I send you this email, 1,484,630 people have pledged to boycott Target until it reverses its dangerous policy of allowing men into women’s restrooms and dressing rooms. You can see the very latest count here. Once we reach 1.5 million, I will personally deliver the signatures to Target’s headquarters in Minneapolis, MN.

Just how dangerous is Target’s policy to its customers? Just last month, a man was allowed inside a Tennessee Target store dressing room without any restriction at all.

According to the police report, “the suspect had been in and out of the dressing room for over an hour before he was caught taking photographs of the victim. I [the officer] observed around 5 or 6 other women enter the dressing room during this time, with each time the suspect entering the dressing room and exiting a short time after the females leave.”

Help us reach the 1.5 million signature mark.

Please, please….forward this email to just ONE FRIEND who you think should know that Target allows men in women’s restrooms and dressing rooms. Forwarding it to just one friend will help us reach our goal of 1.5 million pledges.

When you forward it, please consider changing the subject line to a personal note from you. Here are a few samples:

  • Have you heard about what happened at Target?

  • I’m boycotting Target…and you should too!

  • Target is not a safe place for women and children.

Secondly, reach more friends by sharing this on your Facebook page.

Thirdly, if you haven’t signed the boycott pledge, please sign it today!

If our mission resonates with you, please consider supporting our work financially with a tax-deductible donation. The easiest way to do that is through online giving. It is easy to use, and most of all, it is secure.
