Don’t Let Hate Groups Profit Off AmazonSmile

Target: Jeff Bezos, CEO, Amazon

Goal: Ban hate groups from AmazonSmile.

Dozens of hate groups that promote anti-LGBTQ rhetoric are profiting off of donations from AmazonSmile. Although Amazon says that organizations that promote “intolerance, hate, terrorism, violence, money laundering, or other illegal activities” are ineligible for donations, over 40 hate groups still stand to make tens of thousands of dollars.

One of those organizations is the American Family Association, which has openly opposed anti-bullying efforts in US schools. Another organization is the Family Leader, which has advocated against LGBTQ rights and has called LGBTQ individuals a “public health risk.”

No group that openly advocates for life-imprisonment for the LGBTQ community or calls its members a “public health risk” deserves to profit off charitable donations. Demand that Amazon remove all 40+ hate groups from its AmazonSmile program.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Bezos,

Despite rules that prohibit hate or terrorist groups from profiting off AmazonSmile’s charitable donations, there are over 40 hate groups still making tens of thousands of dollars off your program.

One of those groups is the American Family Association. It openly supports life-imprisonment for the LGBTQ community and also advocates against anti-bullying measures. Another organization is the Family Leader, which has referred to the LGBTQ community as a “public health risk.”

These groups have been designated as hate groups and as such should not be able to profit off charitable donations. These funds will only help further their harmful rhetoric and violence. I demand that they be removed from AmazonSmile.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
