Target Management to Face Shareholders Wednesday


Costa Mesa, CA / Washington, D.C.  – The retail chain Target will hold its annual shareholder meeting Wednesday, June 8 at 9 AM Pacific time, the first time Target’s management will come face-to-face with shareholders since it aggressively entered the culture wars on April 19 by announcing it would “respect” its customers by letting everyone use the fitting and restrooms of their choice — regardless of the views of the other customers using those facilities.

Since then, Target has been the focus of a boycott petition drive by the American Family Association that has quickly reached over 1.3 million signatures.

Coincidentally or not, the share price or Target stock has dropped by 18 percent during the seven weeks since its culture wars announcement.

The National Center for Public Policy Research’s Free Enterprise Project will be among those shareholders in attendance wondering why Target seemingly has chosen to make the culture wars a priority over retail sales this year.

The National Center will be represented by its Free Enterprise Project Director, Justin Danhof, Esq. Danhof will be available to the press following the meeting. To talk with him, contact Judy Kent at (703) 759-7476 or cell (703) 477-7476

Last week, Mr. Danhof attended the shareholder meeting of Target’s main rival, Walmart.  He addressed that meeting, speaking in support of a shareholder proposalsubmitted by the National Center.

Danhof has spoken at over a dozen shareholder meetings of major corporations this year alone, and many dozens more in recent years. 

An op-ed by Danhof discussing the methods McDonald’s has used — unsuccessfully, according to Danhof — to defend itself from assault from the political left appeared in Crain’s Chicago Business on Monday. Danhof spoke at the McDonald’s meeting near Chicago on May 26, where the National Center submitted another shareholder proposal.

  1. They’re not going out of business, they’ll get a new CEO, and change policies or build another bathroom for the confuse, but they’re not going anywhere.

  2. Looks like Target bit off more than it could possibly chew. Just because the Target honcho’s have no morals doesn’t mean morals are gone for the majority of Americans. Trying to pass off immorality as equality has backfired big time. I wouldn’t shop there again now regardless what they do. The shareholders have been well aware of what is going on but until the $$$ started dropping the shareholders didn’t care what went on in their stores. They are as degenerate as the Target honcho’s.

  3. It will be interesting to see how shareholders express themselves on this issue which has effected the bottom line finances of Target. Boycotts are very effective when organized. This one seems pretty spontaneous, as lots of folks are not buying the new policy. Who wants to put their children and/or themselves at risk of attack by predators when there are other options available for shopping. Really! Is this a difficult business decision? Stand up for your customers Target. Ask yourselves, would I put my own family members at risk?

  4. Family values matter and protection of our sons and daughters is important…they need to change their ways or they will go bankrupt….and I hope they do….its called common sense!!!!!

  5. Our children are more important than Target’s left wing policies.
    I’m just one person, but target has lost a customer for LIFE!
