Trump's transition team has signaled they plan to go ahead with their awful plan to create a registry of Muslims in the United States. We need to stop him -- and that includes making it hard for Trump to actually assemble a registry.
That's where the tech companies of Silicon Valley and beyond come into play. If they cooperate with Trump in building a registry of Muslims, those tech companies could do immense damage.
Initially, only Twitter told a reporter from The Intercept that they would refuse to help build such a registry, but other leading tech companies refused to respond. DFA joined human rights groups and sent a letter demanding other tech companies follow Twitter's lead. As a result of that pressure, Facebook and Microsoft announced this week they too would refuse to help Trump build a registry of Muslims.
But other tech companies still won't answer. And their CEOs met with Donald Trump just this week. Help pressure them by demanding tech companies protect civil rights and refuse to help Trump build a registry of Muslims in the United States.
