Excerpt from: CREDO Action
Google just announced that its YouTube division will be the official livestream provider of the Donald Trump-led Republican convention, despite massive pressure from activists demanding the company stand up for its alleged values of diversity and inclusion in the face of Trump’s racism, xenophobia and misogyny.
Google’s planned sponsorship of the Republican convention will help legitimize and normalize Trump’s platform of hate. It’s appalling that access to political power is more important to Google than standing up for its stated values.
It’s not too late for Google to reverse course. That’s why we put together this short video to show Google exactly what it’s getting with its sponsorship of Trump.
Will you watch the video and share it with your friends?Corpor
If you want to watch the video and/or email your friends, here’s the direct link to the video: http://act.credoaction.com/go/11733?t=7&akid=17962.7785905.Dre-r_. Or you can just forward this email.
Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee, it’s more important than ever to stand up against his fascist platform. Keeping the pressure on Google, and on other corporations considering whether or not to sponsor the Republican convention, is an important step in helping to marginalize Trump’s message and his values. The more we can share this video, the stronger that message will be.
Thank you for your activism.
