Dear New York area ColorOfChange.org member,

A half a million people have signed our petition calling on to Fox end their race-baiting and fear-mongering! It’s an amazing response. We’re taking the campaign to the next step: at Fox News Headquarters in Manhattan, hip hop artist Nas — who has a new track calling out Fox’s racism and fear-mongering — will join ColorOfChange.org and MoveOn.org members to deliver the petitions in front of news cameras. Can you join us?

If you can, click here:

You can help make history. Never before has Fox or any other media organization been confronted by this many Black voices and allies. The more folks that show up, the bigger the news story we can create to spread the truth about Fox’s pattern of racist propaganda. Participating is easy. Just make your way to Midtown—we’ll have signs available when you get there.

This won’t be the end of our campaign. Once we successfully brand Fox as a racist propaganda outlet, we’ll take the campaign to Fox’s advertisers. How much they listen to will depend on how well we make ourselves heard right now.

We hope you can join us.

Tate Hausman
