Texas Values has announced we are calling all Texans to boycott Target stores. On April 19th, Target announced their new policy that invites men that ‘identify’ as women to use women’s bathrooms and dressing rooms. Since then, with your activism, Texas Values has helped Texans send tens of thousands of emails and phone calls to Target in protest of the new policy. Target has yet to respond.
Texas Values has chosen to take the next step announcing a boycott of Target and urging all Texans to join the #BoycottTarget effort by signing the American Family Association’s national Boycott Target Pledge. To date, nearly 1.2 million Americans have signed the Boycott Target pledge.
This is the first time in Texas Values’ history that we have called for a boycott, which tells you how serious this issue is to Texans. Texans statewide can no longer be silent on the issue of protecting the safety of women and children. We need all Texans to understand that Target is using this radical change in their store policy to try to convince people that our laws should be changed in this dangerous direction.
Our goal with this boycott is for Target to change its dangerous new policy, to raise awareness of the real threats to safety that these policies bring and to help businesses and lawmakers understand the significant opposition to such measures that is growing daily. Houston voters soundly rejected what Target is doing, and it’s now clear that Texans all across our state must join this Boycott Target effort before someone gets hurt.
Please take these 3 action steps immediately:
- Sign the American Family Association Boycott Target Pledge and commit to shop elsewhere until Target makes the safety of women and children a priority.
- Continue to contact Target directly and encourage them to reverse their policy to invite men into women’s bathrooms and dressing rooms. We also encourage you to directly call Target Guest Relations at 1-800-440-0680.
- Share your concerns on Target’s Facebook page. When sharing this on social media use #BoycottTarget.
