Action Alert:
Tell Companies Hosting NRA Convention to Back Out


194 people have taken this action


From May 3-6, 2018, the National Rifle Association will hold its annual meeting at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas, Texas. The Omni Dallas Hotel and the Hyatt Regency Dallas are providing rooms for meeting attendees.

The Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas is planning to host the NRA in May.

They are doing this against the wishes of Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway, who told the press, “It is a tough call when you ask the NRA to reconsider coming to Dallas, but it is putting our citizens first. Who needs an AR-15 to go hunting? Who needs an AR-15 to protect their house? … At the end of the day, we need to connect the dots.”

With companies nationwide dropping the NRA like a hot potato because it is a violent, white supremacist organization that values personal greed over human lives in all cases, it is time for these facilities to do so as well.

Please contact the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center, the Omni Dallas Hotel, and the Hyatt Regency Dallas through one of the channels below and give them the following message (personalized to your liking):

I was deeply disappointed to hear that you are working with the National Rifle Association to host their upcoming annual meeting from May 3-6. I am contacting you today to ask you to end this business arrangement immediately. No reputable business should be associating with the NRA. They are a white supremacist organization that encourages violence against their fellow Americans and cares not a lick about the bloodshed caused by the weak gun laws they have lobbied for, because their leaders have become personally enriched. If you want to continue to have my business, I urge you to terminate your relationship with the NRA regarding the May 3-6 meeting. I will be watching your actions closely and sharing information with family and friends who live in, and travel to, Dallas.

Thank you for doing everything in your power to make it clear to America’s corporations that a violent, racist outfit like the NRA is no longer fit for polite company.
