Target Boycott Petition from AFA Grows Over Transgender Bathroom Policy

Target Boycott Petition Grows Over Transgender Bathroom Policy | More than 700,000 people have signed a pledge to boycott the retail giant.

The American Family Association (AFA), a Christian nonprofit organization based in Mississippi, launched on April 20, 2016 the petition to boycott Target following the company’s announcement last week to allow transgender people to use the bathroom and fitting rooms corresponding with their gender identity, rather than the sex indicated on their birth certificate.

The City of Oxford in Alabama passed an ordinance on Tuesday in response to Target’s new policies. The ordinance makes it illegal to use public restrooms and changing areas that are different from the sex on the person’s birth certificate; however, transgender people in Oxford would still be able to use the bathroom at Target corresponding with their gender identity since it is a private company.
