Tech companies must say NO to Trump’s national Muslim registry
Journalists recently asked nine major tech companies whether they would help Donald Trump’s administration build a national Muslim registry -- and only Twitter and Facebook have clearly refused.
Creating a Muslim registry isn't just ineffective -- it's dangerous. Vicious hate crimes against Muslims, including physical assaults and arson against mosques, are at their highest level since 2001. And they're being stoked in part by false and incendiary rhetoric implying that Muslims are more likely to commit acts of terrorism in the United States.
Trump wants to enshrine this prejudice into the law. But he couldn't build a Muslim registry without hardware, software, or data provided by private technology companies. That's why Google, Microsoft, and others must draw a line against anti-Muslim bigotry.
If they don’t speak out, we’ll expose their cowardice to the public -- damaging the brands they’ve spent billions of dollars developing and turning up the pressure to publicly reject the possibility of collaborating with Trump’s anti-Muslim agenda. It starts with thousands of people like you speaking out and demanding that tech companies do the right thing. Will you sign the petition asking tech companies to publicly reject any efforts to register Muslims?
Sign the petition asking Microsoft, Google, Apple, IBM, Booz Allen Hamilton, SRA International, and CGI to publicly refuse to participate in Trump's proposed Muslim registry:
"The technology sector has no business supporting Donald Trump's anti-Muslim agenda. I'm calling on you to publicly refuse to participate in the creation of a national Muslim registry, as the Trump administration has proposed."
