A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Amazon is still giving advertising money to white supremacist fake news site Breitbart News. But next week’s annual shareholder meeting is our big chance to change that.
On Tuesday, May 23, during Amazon’s annual shareholder meeting, UltraViolet members and allies in Seattle will deliver one million signatures demanding Amazon quit giving advertising money to Breitbart immediately. If we can threaten the company’s standing with shareholders on Tuesday, executives will finally pull the plug on their Breitbart ads.
Amazon executives have been squirming under pressure to cut the company’s involvement with Breitbart–even Amazon employees are pushing the company to stop. That’s why UltraViolet, SumofUs, MoveOn.org, Care2.org, and The Representation Project are going to show up to their meeting–but if we want this to work, a huge crowd needs to turn out.
