Rally outside Target's NY Corporate Office! 9/17 at 4pm

Start: Thursday, September 17, 2020 4:00 PM

End: Thursday, September 17, 2020 5:00 PM

Join us to rally outside Target's NY Corporate Office to tell them #DontTargetAstoria.

Target is planning to move into the space where Key Food supermarket currently occupies.

At this time of rampant hunger in our neighborhood, Target wants to evict one of our few local grocers and eliminate their unionized employees. This will result in longer lines at local food pantries, more of our neighbors struggling to pay the rent, and will speed up the gentrification of our community.

We want to tell Target loud and clear- #DontTargetAstoria!

When: Thursday, September 17th

Time: 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Where: Target's Corporate NY Office, 521 West 25th Street, NYC

At this event we will be delivering our petition with over 400 signatures, as well as personalized letters demanding Target stop trying to evict Key Food, to Target's offices. We encourage you to write your own letters, either by hand or printed out. You can use the email script at the bottom of this page here as an example.

For cyclists, we will be organizing a bike ride to the office from Queensboro Plaza at Crescent Street and Queens Plaza North outside the Floating Hospital leaving at 3:15 pm. Please note on the RSVP form if you will be biking.

Please remember to wear a mask, and bring a sign calling to Stop Target!
