Move the US Women's Open
April 27, 2017
Protests and petitions have been sent to the LPGA Tour Commissioner in an effort to move the US Womens Open from a Trump golf course.
"The national women's advocacy organization UltraViolet says more than 100,000 people have signed a petition calling on the United States Golf Association and the LPGA Tour to move the 2017 U.S. Women's Open from Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J."
Sport can be both a great unifier and it can also be divisive. This is a great opportunity for the LPGA to send a message that associating with any type of racism serial sexual abuse and mocking of disabilty is unacceptable.
Contacting companies that support the Women's Open is the easiest way to do this. Let them know how you feel and how you use your money. Sponsorship is where the money comes from. The major sponsors for the LPGA Tour are American Express, Lexus, Deloitte and Rolex.
