Disney needs to take a stand


Disney shouldn't be in the racism business — but its CEO sits on Trump's business council along with 18 other corporate leaders. By cooperating with Trump, Disney is endorsing his bigotry.

Keep the villains on the screen: Urge Disney to dump Trump.



Disney needs to take a stand


Tell Disney: Stand up to hate and quit Trump’s team.


Nineteen corporate leaders sit on Trump’s business council — including Disney CEO Bob Iger. Today, we join our allies at Muslim Advocates and Color Of Change in urging Iger to #QuitTheCouncil and reject Trump and his despicable Muslim ban.

Keep the villains on the screen. Tell Disney it’s time to dump Trump.

Media companies should serve and represent their audiences, not support racist policies that have wrongfully detained hundreds of people. By cooperating with Trump, Disney is endorsing his bigotry. We won’t stand for that.

This kind of pressure works: On Thursday, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick left Trump’s business council after calls to #DeleteUber rattled the company. And Disney’s Bob Iger is already skipping council meetings, but he needs to quit altogether.

Urge Disney’s CEO to stand up to hate and quit Trump’s business council.

Thanks for all that you do—
