Five Reasons Families Should Boycott Target

Friday, April 14, 2023 @ 08:53 AM Five Reasons Families Should Boycott Target Tim Wildmon President MORE

AFA's Target boycott, launched in April 2016, was a direct result of Target announcing that men who identify as women could have free and unfettered access to the changing rooms and restrooms of women and girls.

Already, over 1.5 million people have signed a pledge to boycott Target.

This policy is a direct threat to women and girls as sexual predators have taken advantage of this policy to gain access to their victims. Since then, scores of women and children have been violated inside Target stores.

Despite Target's denial that men entering women's rooms is a problem, the reality remains that it is a major problem. We have the proof.

In the past year alone, there have been at least five separate incidents in which men have freely entered women’s dressing rooms inside Target stores, photographing and filming women as they undressed. (Of course, we have no idea how many men got away with doing so, simply because they were not caught.)

Consider these most recent and alarming news headlines:

It's clear to anyone that Target's policies allowed these sexual predators to commit their crimes by failing to take the simple measure of not allowing men in women’s dressing room areas.

Target is hoping you won't care that they allow men into women's bathrooms and changing rooms and will do your shopping with them. AFA knows that you do care.

Any company as large as Target can withstand a short-term loss of sales. That's why we’re asking you to stay the course with us.

Let's hold firm to our conviction that men have no place in women's restrooms and dressing rooms and continue our pledge to boycott Target stores.

1. If you have not yet signed the boycott pledge, please do so now! (If you're not sure, you can sign the pledge and our records will indicate your current status.)

2. Forward this information to friends and family. Invite them to sign the boycott pledge at

3. Call Target headquarters at 612-304-6073, option 2, and personally let them know you are boycotting their stores.

4. Voice your concerns on Target's Facebook page.
