GAP: Discontinue the "MANIFEST DESTINY" tshirt and issue a formal apology.
Awaiting Response from Gap Regarding Further Action
Oct 30, 2012 — Although the short-term goals of this petition have been met, the long-term goals of ending oppression and bringing awareness to historical and transgenerational trauma continues. As a symbolic gesture, we have decided not to declare this petition a “victory.”
Gap needs to focus on repairing the damage it has caused to its relationship with American Indians, other indigenous tribes, and their allies.
We have invited Gap to contact us to further address this rupture. We are awaiting to see if Gap is willing to take actionable steps to foster a better relationship with these affected groups for the future. Whether Gap will accept our invitation for further collaboration will demonstrate whether they sincerely intend to follow through on the process of making amends.
We will post additional updates to inform our supporters.
