|North Napa Target 4000 Bel Air Plaza, Napa, Ca|
"Target has spent over $150,000 in the Minnesota Governor's race backing state Rep. Tom Emmer, a far-right Republican who supports Arizona's draconian immigration law, wants to abolish the minimum wage and even gave money to a fringe group that condoned the execution of gay people."
Target is allowed to donate money to political campaigns due to a Supreme Court ruling which allows corporations to donate money based upon their “fr...ee speech rights” as “corporate persons.”
This Thursday and Friday the CEO of Target will be in Napa. Come to North Target this Friday at 12:00PM to protest this and show the CEO of Target how you feel about this!
4000 Bel Air Plaza! Spread the word!
