Online petition to boycott Target over bathroom policy tops 900,000 signatures
CLEVELAND, Ohio — A religious group's petition calling for the boycott of Target stores because of the company's policy to allow transgenders to use the restroom of their choice has topped 900,000 signatures.
The American Family Association, a Christian non-profit group, started the petition last week and it had more than 935,000 signatures as of Wednesday night.
"We decided there's probably a lot of people who wanted to take a stand before Target's decision started a trend," AFA President Tim Wildmon tells ABC News. "We found out we were right."
The AFA argues that Target's policy will allow sexual predators access to potential victims.
