YMCA: Stop the Hate; turn off Fox News!

The YMCA was founded with a mission to ‘improve the spiritual condition of young men’ and has a deep history of service work in marginalized communities. This history is the very premise of our concern that the YMCA allows for Fox News to occupy airtime in facilities across the United States. The hate filled rhetorical strategy of Fox News is built on lies, falsehoods, and misjudgements about the very communities the YMCA serves.  This constant stream of negativity acts as a brainwashing mechanism, confusing truth and reality and offering little insight towards advancement.

Please sign this petition and join us in urging the YMCA to Turn off Fox News and instead deliver services that speak to the core mission of the organization.

We will deliver this petition in person in true CODEPINK fashion!

    Fox News is not compatible with an organization that dedicated to youth development and healthy living. It teaches hatred, intolerance and blame.

    Fox News’s mission and that of the YMCA are not compatible. Please turn off Fox News in your facilities. There’s enough hate in the world without it! Thanks!
