Donald Trump is endangering the future of the United States and the world.
To express our opposition to Trump and his policies, we are boycotting three of his most visible businesses in New York City: the Central Park carousel and the park's two ice-skating rinks, Lasker and Wollman. We are also boycotting Victorian Gardens, the amusement park that leases Wollman Rink from Trump in the summer.
Many of us used to enjoy these attractions with our children. We can't anymore—not if we want to spend our time and money in accordance with our values and teach our kids how to stand up to injustice.
We recognize that this boycott will not impoverish Trump. But along with other resistance efforts nationwide, it will demonstrate how unpopular he is. Without the public's support, Trump cannot carry out his agenda, which includes banning Muslims, tearing apart immigrant families, ravaging the environment, thwarting the Russia investigations, and shredding the social safety net.
Our action is also a call to New York City's government, which licensed the carousel and the rinks to Trump before he ran for president, to sever ties with him as soon as possible.
