Petition Background

Mike Pence flew 3,300 miles in Air Force Two on a Trump-promoted stunt—spending millions in the process—just so he could insult NFL players taking a knee for racial justice.

After some players knelt during the national anthem at a recent Indianapolis Colts game, Pence walked out of the stadium, later saying in a statement "I stand with President Trump, I stand with our soldiers, and I will always stand for our Flag and our National Anthem."2

It was an obvious media stunt, designed to continue the administration's racist attacks on athletes peacefully demonstrating against police brutality and systematic racism.

Unlike our vice president and Donald Trump, I actually served in the military, and I am 100% in support of the athletes calling attention to our broken, unjust system. I don't appreciate it when Trump and Pence talk about veterans and the flag to hide their own racist agenda, and I don't appreciate a expensive, taxpayer-funded publicity stunt to advance their politics of hate.

Join me in telling Pence to pay us back for his stunt.
