Salesforce is helping Border Patrol violate human rights, Don’t work for them. Don’t use their products. Don’t go to their conference.

Since the news broke of Salesforce’s multimillion dollar Border Patrol contract, activists across the country have protested, employees have organized, and a steadily growing coalition of organizations that are Salesforce customers have called on the company to cut ties with CBP. Salesforce has refused, made excuses, and attempted to sweep the issue under the rug.

Salesforce executives are trying to hide. So we launched DropSalesforce.com

DropSalesforce features:

  • Our crowdfunding effort to run bus ads in San Francisco
  • An open letter signed by dozens of organizations, many of whom are threatening to join a boycott if the company does not cancel the contract
  • A tool that allows human rights supporters to tweet at speakers who are scheduled to appear at Dreamforce, Salesforce’s huge conference, calling on them to pull out of the conference if Salesforce does not do the right thing

Salesforce really cares about their conference. We’re going to make sure that it doesn’t go well unless they do the right thing.

The pressure will only continue to increase in the coming weeks. Join us: https://www.dropsalesforce.com
