Thanks to you, we were able to get Coca-Cola to take the unprecedented step of pulling most of their sponsorship from the Trump-led Republican National Convention (RNC), proving the power of everyday people.1 When we rise up together we can win! And together we can get other companies to follow suit.

Microsoft – a self-proclaimed leader in diversity – is planning to give the Trump-led RNC at least $500,000! Not only that, but they’re planning to provide the Trump-led RNC with all of its tech support needs for free.

Trump, who’s suggesting his supporters riot if he doesn’t win the Republican nomination, has been running a campaign built on violent rhetoric, racially charged imagery, and paranoid conspiracy theories.2 Just last month, he offered to pay the legal fees for a supporter of his who sucker-punched a peaceful Black protester.3 And last week, a teenage girl was pepper-sprayed while being a called ‘n**ger lover’ by a Trump supporter at his rally.4

Microsoft has a history-making choice right now. Once they start writing checks, they are committing to support the platform of someone threatening riots at the convention. After hundreds of thousands of you demanded action, Coca-Cola announced it is terminating its financial sponsorship of the RNC – now it’s time for Microsoft to follow suit and dump Trump.

Our partners over at Change.org initiated this drive. Please support them!!

Click here to directly call Microsoft’s executive team and tell them: “Reject Trump’s racism, violence, and sexism. Cancel your sponsorship of the Republican National Convention.”

Make no mistake, corporate sponsors of these lavish conventions are about more than promoting “civic engagement” – as some companies continue to claim. This is about buying access to power. And this year will be a coronation ball for Trump and his white supremacist supporters sponsored by Microsoft and other Big Tech companies. Bigotry will be front and center on prime time television, with all the accompanying massage rooms, technology and top-shelf drinks sponsored by the same corporations that make their profits off of us.5

In 2012, Microsoft provided tools – like Skype, Kinect, and Web application SharePoint – and consulting services to convention organizers and participants in the planning and execution of the RNC. In other words, they are the speaker box Trump, Cruz and others will get to use to amplify their bigoted, xenophobic and racist rhetoric, not just to those in attendance, but millions of people around the world. Imagine Trump, spewing hatred and encouraging violence brought to our screens by Microsoft, while the rioters he promised circle the convention. Maybe those same people will even get to relax in the Google lounge afterwards. This is absolutely unacceptable.

Introduce yourself and explain the issue:

Hello [Name of person you’re calling],

I’m calling about Microsoft’s plans to financially support the Trump-led Republican National Convention and to provide tech support at the convention.

You have a history-making choice right now – reject Trump’s racism, violence, and sexism by canceling your sponsorship of the Republican National Convention or forever be associated with Trump’s brand of hate and violence. Do you want riots brought to us by Microsoft?

If Microsoft truly believes in corporate civic responsibility, then funding a platform for an anti-democratic demagogue preaching violently anti-Black, anti-Latino, anti-Muslim, and anti-women bigotry should be the last thing you would ever want to sponsor.

Sincerely,

[Your name]
