Tell Bloomberg to fund racial justice groups instead of a presidential campaign

Michael Bloomberg's defense of racially targeted policing in the audio recording below is disqualifying. He must not be elected president.

Bloomberg's statement on the audio tape includes this:
"One of the unintended consequences is people say, ‘Oh my God, you are arresting kids for marijuana that are all minorities.’ Yes, that’s true. Why? Because we put all the cops in minority neighborhoods. Yes. That’s true. Why do we do it? Because that’s where all the crime is. . . And the ways you get the guns out of the kids’ hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them."

Please sign the petition below:

Michael Bloomberg,

We urge you to cease funding your presidential campaign, and to instead donate the same amount of money to racial justice groups such as the Innocence Project, the Center for Constitutional Rights, the ACLU Racial Justice Program, and Black Lives Matter.
