Dump Trump Hotels | From

February 5, 2017

Ask Expedia to Dump Trump Hotels
Action Goal: To get Expedia and its partners to drop all Trump Hotels from its reservations platform

Big Picture: Let’s force companies nationwide to reckon with the economic power of their customers. Let them know profiting from political neutrality will no longer be an option. If they want to avoid what happened to Uber they will need to pick a side in the war on hate.

Context: Expedia CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has made unequivocally brave statements against the anti-immigration executive orders. It’s time for the company to take the next logical step and stop selling Trump Hotel reservations.

Method: Contact Expedia by any and all channels and ask them very politely to lead by example and drop all Trump Hotels from all of their websites and booking services

Example Text:

Given your CEO’s recent brave words of criticism towards the president’s executive order, I was surprised to see that your website still facilitates reservations for Trump Hotels. I love using Expedia to book my travel and I want to continue to be a loyal customer. However, I would like to see your company take the logical next step and drop Trump Hotels. Expedia should send a message and not participate in anyway in the funding of hate, xenophobia and the subversion of our democracy.

I pledge that I will reward any company that makes this bold step with my business and I will stop using reservations websites that don’t.

Remember: Be polite. Expedia is not an enemy. They know what is right and they know who controls the bulk of the consumer economy. We just need to remind them and ask them to take a stand.
