A Brief History of the #GrabYourWallet Movement
2
The #GrabYourWallet boycott began October 11, 2016 in the wake of the Trump Tapes when a brand strategist and a grandmother simultaneously realized they could no longer in good conscience shop at retailers that do business with the Trump family. Never having met, Shannon Coulter and Sue Atencio immediately joined forces and announced on Twitter they'd be boycotting any retailer that carried Trump products, publishing a short list of such retailers later that same evening. On October 14th, Shannon introduced the #GrabYourWallet hashtag both as a rejoinder to Donald Trump's infamous hot mic remark and an invocation of women's epic consumer power. The hashtag and the movement exploded on social media and has been viewed over 500 million times. No longer just a boycott, #GrabYourWallet has evolved into a movement and central resource for the flexing of consumer power in favor of a more respectful, inclusive society. It's been reported on by The New York Times, Vogue, The Guardian, Cosmopolitan, CNN, MSNBC, Nightline, and BBC among dozens of other media outlets (see below). Notable figures who have amplified or supported the movement include Don Cheadle, Greg Louganis, Lucy Lawless, Roseanne Cash, Joyce Carol Oates, Robert Reich, Pam Grier, Ben Cohen, and Joy Reid. /// 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 expanded to include more than 50 companies. On November 23rd, the official #GrabYourWallet boycott list moved from a public Google doc to grabyourwallet.org, where it receives up to 100,000 unique visits per week. 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, six companies (including five retailers) have been dropped from the #GrabYourWallet list, starting with Shoes.com on November 12, 2016. To see the other companies that have been dropped from the #GrabYourWallet boycott, visit the "Which Companies Have Been Dropped" section of the site. In February, the seventh company — The Honest Company — will likely be dropped from the list, as it has reached out to us and committed to not being a sponsor on future seasons of the Celebrity Apprentice.
