When: Thu Aug 5 from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
Where: Target – Lake St. and Hiawatha
Why: Target donated $150,000 to MN Forward, for an ad on behalf of anti-immigrant, anti-gay, and anti-minimum wage Republican candidate for governor Tom Emmer.
Join us to demand Target stop funding this extremist candidate!
Anti-Immigrant: Emmer says that AZ law SB1070 is a wonderful first step, and continues to be a vocal supporter of it, even after a court has ruled much of the bill to be unconstitutional and promoting of racial profiling.
Anti-LGBTQ: Emmer supports a Christian rock band in Minnesota that travels around the state saying that it’s moral and righteous for religious people to kill gays and lesbians.
Anti-Minimum Wage: Emmer has said he wants to cut minimum for servers, claiming many make over $100,000 a year.
Keep corporate cash out of our elections! This donation makes Target one of the very first companies to take advantage of the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision allowing unlimited corporate cash in elections.
Bring signs and friends!
