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!

    Mean-spirited hatefulness and misinformation have no place in a Christian organization. Thank you.

    Let’s get a movement to RAISE the intellect, tolerance, and critical thinking of our nation. FOX does none of these things. It is, in fact, contributing to the decline of civility, intellect, and unity. Weren’t you at one time associated with Christianity? What would Jesus say about all the hate?
