Boycott Marriott.

Doubtless many of you have already read about the Marriott Hotel in Connecticut that's been engaged in victim blaming this week.

If not, the long story short is that a woman was assaulted and raped in a Marriott Hotel parking garage, in front of her two young children. At least one hotel employee had noticed the assailant hanging around the garage before the assault but did nothing. So who is the Marriott Hotel calling "careless and negligent"? Why, the victim of course.

Click here and let Marriott know that you won't be giving them any of your hard-earned dollars until they issue a public apology and make clear what steps they will be taking to prevent anything like this from happening in the future.
