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!

    I am a long time member of the Hollywood-Wilshire Y, and the message of Fox News is contrary to your mission statement. Fairness and Accuracy In Reporting (FAIR) also has documented that CNN uses the same right wing sources that Fox News does, so that is not an alternative either. At the Hollywood Y the work-out room and the women’s locker room have no t.v.‘s. (we got them) The men’s locker room still has a t.v., but constantly plays ESPN.

    Thank you Code Pink for this petition! I so agree and have cringed seeing FOX at our local YMCA where it plays to the most vulnerable children even when it is not being watched it has impact on developing minds. A pleasure for me to sign YMCA: Stop the Hate; Turn off Fox News.

    Fox News is deliberately inflammatory and prejudicial, as well as completely unconcerned with presenting the truth.
