YOU CAN’T KILL US
TAKE OUR MONEY!
CALL TO ACTION
STEP 1 = COMPLETE
During 7 days of protest through economic withdrawal, #NoEqualityNoEconomy spread to over 1 million people. If only one person out of every 100 who saw the campaign took action, then we diverted about $5 million away from these corporations and into local and black-owned businesses during the week of Monday, July 18 through Monday, July 25, 2016. If five people out of every 100 took action, the impact was $25 million.
STEP 2 = Corporate Responsibility
During the upcoming months, #NoEqualityNoEconomy will withhold spending from SPECIFIC corporations, in a demand for accountability. These corporations must take immediate action and become aggressive partners in the call for criminal justice reform and police accountability.
As we DIVEST from corporations that profit off of our oppression, we will migrate our dollars to INVEST in ones that value our lives!
THIS TIME WILL BE DIFFERENT!
“A system built to divide, impoverish
and destroy us cannot stand if we do”
What Do Major Corporations Have to Do With Police Brutality and the Value of Black Life?
We are launching a 7 day protest with our dollars. Holding our money is the quickest way to make corporations understand that we will no longer stand by while they silently profit from our oppression. Black spending power is estimated at $1.3 TRILLION, alone. When profits are on the line, corporations will be motivated to adopt behavioral changes to repair the relationship with their consumers. When Nike sales plummeted following public outrage over the use of sweatshop labor, the company began to conduct factory visits and implement work standards. When we unite and utilize the power of the dollar together, we will send a resounding message that, until black life matters in this country – No Equality, No Economy!
So for those of you that ask
“what will withdrawing our money do?”
Now you know!
This is the reason for #NoEqualityNoEconomy –
YOU WILL NO LONGER KILL US
AND TAKE OUR MONEY!!!!!!
LETS DO SOMETHING!
TOGETHER WE CAN DO SOMETHING!
