IFI Joins AFA Calling for a Boycott of Target Stores

Illinois Family Institute joins our long time friends and national affiliate at the American Family Association calling for a boycott of Target. The boycott was called for after the retail giant said it would allow men to use the women’s restrooms and dressing rooms in their stores.

On its web Target announced “[W]e welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity. …Everyone deserves to feel like they belong.”

This means a man can simply say he “feels like a woman today” and enter the women’s restroom…even if young girls or women are already in there. Target’s policy is exactly how sexual predators and voyeurs get access to their victims. Moreover, with Target publicly boasting that men can enter women’s bathrooms, where do you think predators and voyeurs are going to go?

On May 11, 2016, officials from AFA met with Target management and presented to them 1.2 million petition signatures. Target management said they will not change their policy. We urge you to sign the AFA pledge and join over a million people who have decided to BOYCOTT all Target stores.
