Dear 5849376,

These stores are funding abortion bans

Amazon, Target and Walmart say they are committed to gender equity but give political contributions to Republicans who are putting women's lives at risk. That needs to stop.

Access to reproductive healthcare and abortion have never been more at risk than they are now. Republican state lawmakers have passed more than 58 abortion restrictions in 2019 alone.1 Political contributions from so called "pro-women" corporations that help anti-abortion Republicans stay in power are a big part of the problem. That's why we're teaming up with our friends at UltraViolet to expose Amazon, Target and Walmart and demand that they immediately divest from the anti-abortion lobby.

Tell Amazon, Target, Walmart and more: Make good on your commitment to gender equity. Stop supporting anti-woman politicians. Click here to sign the petition.

Amazon likes to brag about its so-called women empowerment programs, like "Amazon Women in Engineering."2 Target's CEO accepted an award for gender inclusivity.3 Walmart likes to talk about its "Global Women's Economic Initiative" to combat gender inequality.4 All of them gave tens of thousands of dollars to lawmakers who push for state abortion bans.

Amazon gave at least $15,000 to the Republican State Leadership Committee, which supports politicians who passed state abortion bans.5 Target gave at least $13,500 to the same committee.6 Walmart gave a whopping $124,800 to that committee and directly to Missouri, Alabama, and Georgia politicians who pushed for each state's abortion ban.7

These corporations pride themselves on their "pro-women" policies, but they support politicians who use women's lives and health as political footballs. We can help stop that. More and more companies care about the social and political issues that their consumers advocate for. If enough of us speak out and demand they stop giving to anti-women, anti-abortion politicians, we can make the case that their consumers – and their bottom lines – want them to support reproductive rights and justice.

Tell Amazon, Target, Walmart and more: Make good on your commitment to gender equity. Stop supporting anti-woman politicians. Click the link below to sign the petition.
