smgdownload366 Apr. 06 20.03Huge news from COLOR OF CHANGE!

Because of pressure from ColorOfChange members like you, The New York Times is reporting that Coca-Cola will no longer provide financial support to Trump and the Republican National Convention (RNC)!1

Thanks to the pressure generated by the more than 124,000 of you, Coca-Cola has declined to match the $660,000 it provided to the Republican convention in 2012. It’s clear that your voices have the power to shift the decision-making of major corporations and the problematic politicians they support.

While Coke’s decision to not make future monetary contributions is important, Coke and other corporations need to demand refunds of contributions they’ve already made, refuse to fulfill prior pledges of support, and make sure their products and brands are nowhere to be seen at the convention or during coverage of the convention. We will continue to make it clear to Coke that any association or promotion of Coke products during the Trump-led RNC will be seen as an endorsement of Trump and his message.

Coca-Cola is just the first domino to fall in the campaign to get corporate sponsors to divest from hate. And The New York Times is reporting that other major corporate sponsors are growing even more nervous about sponsoring Trump and the RNC. We need to seize this moment and push other wavering companies like Google, Walmart, and Apple to join Coke in immediately terminating their plans to sponsor Trump and the RNC.

Demand the remaining corporate funders of Trump and the RNC follow Coke’s lead and immediately terminate their sponsorships!

Until Justice is Real,

Below is the initial email COC sent out and we helped circulate!!!

Donald Trump is all but certain to be the Republican presidential nominee this summer. And corporate sponsors like Coca-Cola are planning to fund his coronation at the Republican National Convention (RNC).

Even with Trump refusing to disavow the support of the Ku Klux Klan this weekend and declaring “All Lives Matter” at a rally, Coca-Cola still has not canceled their sponsorship of the RNC.3 4 How can Coca-Cola, a company that heavily markets to and profits from Black people, fund a platform for a presidential nominee that is being bolstered into office by former Grand Wizard David Duke, the KKK, and other white supremacists?

Coca-Cola is stuck pretending that their sponsorship won’t provide a platform for Trump’s dehumanizing hate speech. But when corporate dollars are used to fund a platform for a demagogue who promotes a violently anti-Black message, that company is just as culpable as the person shouting.

Will you call on Coca-Cola and other sponsoring companies to end their sponsorships of a Trump-led convention?

YES – I’ll demand Coca-Cola stop providing a platform for hate speech.

Coca-Cola, like many of the companies sponsoring the RNC, claims to be a champion of diversity and has run multi-million dollar marketing campaigns to convince the public of that claim.5 If Coca-Cola wants to maintain its image as a diverse and inclusive company, then it can in no way fund a platform for Donald Trump.

Trump’s violent political rhetoric has very real consequences for Black people.6 His use of violent rhetoric, racially charged imagery, and paranoid conspiracy theories dehumanizes Black Americans and encourages hate crimes, white terrorist attacks, and daily violence against Black Americans. It’s even inspiring a rise in membership for white supremacist groups and causing a huge spike in the number of white terror militia groups.7 8 If Coca-Cola funds a Trump-led RNC, they will be funding all of Trump’s damaging messages.

Demand Coca-Cola stop providing a platform for hate speech.
