A Brief History of the #GrabYourWallet Movement
2
The #GrabYourWallet boycott began on October 11, 2016 in the wake of the release of the Trump Tapes. Shannon Coulter and Sue Atencio realized they could no longer in good conscience shop with retailers that do business with the Trump family. Never having met, they joined forces and announced on Twitter they'd be boycotting any retailer that carried Trump products, with the goal of motivating such companies to stop doing business with the Trump family. They published a short list of such retailers later that same evening and on October 14th, Shannon introduced the #GrabYourWallet hashtag -- both as a response to Donald Trump's infamous hot mic remark and a reference to women's epic consumer power. The hashtag exploded on social media and has been viewed over a billion times. Since then, the #GrabYourWallet boycott has grown into a movement and central resource for the flexing of consumer power in favor of a more respectful and inclusive society. It's been reported on by The New York Times, Vogue, Teen Vogue, Washington Post, NPR, The Guardian, BBC, Cosmopolitan, CNN, MSNBC, and Nightline among many other media outlets (see below). Notable figures who have amplified or supported the movement include Don Cheadle, Greg Louganis, Lucy Lawless, Roseanne Cash, Neko Case, Joyce Carol Oates, Robert Reich, Pam Grier, George Clinton, John Leguizamo, Rob Corddry and Ben Cohen (of Ben & Jerry's). /// To get in touch, send an email to shannon (at) grabyourwallet (dot) org.

About The #GrabYourWallet List
4
Since its first humble incarnation as a screenshot on October 11th, the #GrabYourWallet boycott list has grown as a central resource for understanding how our own consumer purchases may have inadvertently supported the political rise of the Trump family. On November 23rd, the official #GrabYourWallet boycott list moved from a public Google doc to grabyourwallet.org. A small GYW team carefully monitors the inventory of the companies on the list such as Amazon, Nordstrom, and Lord & Taylor and immediately drops companies from the boycott list once it's been verified that official Trump products are no longer available -- either online or in brick and mortar locations. To date, more than 20 companies have been dropped from the #GrabYourWallet list including Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, Neiman Marcus, Jet, Uber, QVC, and Kawasaki. To see this information, visit the "Which Companies Have Been Dropped" section of the site.
