SAN FRANCISCO N.O.W. TO PICKET DOMINO'S PIZZA
What: Informational Picket of Domino's Pizza
Where: Domino's Pizza at 5200 Geary Boulevard (at 17th Ave)
When: Friday March 2nd, 1990 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Highlights for Coverage:
The owner of Domino's Pizza, Tom Monaghan, is vehemently anti-choice and has poured literally hundreds of thousands of dollars into anti-choice organizations including Operation Rescue, an organization that engages in illegal and sometimes dangerous tactics to blockade family planning clinics, prohibiting women's access to abortions and violating their constitutional rights. Among some of the other organizations that Monaghan has heavily funded is the Committee to End Tax-Funded Abortions. He contributed at least $50,000 to fund passage of this group's ballot referendum which banned Medicaid abortion funding in the state of Michigan and restricted reproductive rights of poor women in that state.
Tom Monaghan is also connected with a variety of other right-wing and religious groups. He has been accused of being anti-union and discriminatory in his employment practices. He owns 97% of the company's stock and thus, profits from EVERY PIZZA SOLD!!
The San Francisco Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) has organized an informational picket of Domino's Pizza to inform the public of Monaghan's association with these groups and of the fact that a portion of every dollar they spend on Domino's Pizza goes toward the funding and continued support of these organizations and their agendas. An expected 50 to 100 picketers will gather in front of Domino's Pizza on Geary near 17th Avenue to demonstrate and distribute information to the public starting at 6:00 PM.
San Francisco NOW is a local chapter of the National Organization for Women whose purpose is to take action to bring women into full participation in the mainstream of American society now, exercising all of the priveleges and responsibilities thereof in truly equal partnership with men. The organization is dedicated to ending discrimination against women in all of its forms.
