At the end of April, La Raza made an interesting little announcement:
MCDONALD’S® ANNOUNCED AS TITLE SPONSOR OF THE 2009 NCLR ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Washington, DC—NCLR (National Council of La Raza), the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, today announced McDonald’s as this year’s Title Sponsor of the 2009 NCLR Annual Conference, which will be held July 25–28 at McCormick Place West in Chicago, Illinois.
“We are delighted to have McDonald’s as this year’s Conference Title Sponsor. Their support and alliance, even in these tough economic times, will help contribute to this key event for the Hispanic community,” said Janet Murguía, NCLR President and CEO.
“At McDonald’s, we are honored to welcome and support NCLR in bringing its Annual Conference to our hometown. We applaud NCLR for its unwavering leadership and work to address critical issues affecting the Hispanic community,” said J.C. Gonzalez-Mendez, President of McDonald’s Latin America and a member of the NCLR Corporate Board of Advisors. The NCLR Annual Conference is the single largest gathering of its kind in the Latino community. More than 25,000 community organization leaders, activists, and volunteers; elected and appointed officials; members of the corporate, philanthropic, and academic communities; senior citizens; college students; and youth are expected to participate this year.

With the Obominable health care reform disaster now looming on the Congressional horizon, and armed with the knowledge that La Raza is fighting to force hard-working, tax-paying American citizens to give away nationalized health care to the 22+ million illegal aliens in this country (“better than amnesty” for criminals, they say), we say the stars have aligned to allow every patriot to show their true colors and make their voice heard.
BOYCOTT MCDONALD’S FROM JULY 19th THROUGH THE END OF THE MONTH
And don’t forget to politely let them know why they are not receiving your business. It is important they understand that there are consequences to actions and when a business makes a bad decision it will cost them money. In this case, half a month’s worth of money.

Sample comment: I want you to know that I will not be visiting any of your restaurants during the second half of July because McDonald’s has chosen to sponsor this year’s National Council of La Raza annual conference. The NCLR is working closely with Senator Mendendez to have illegal immigrants covered in the administration’s push for health care reform and I believe that this attempt to reward criminals is not only wrong, but it is unfair to legal, tax-paying Americans. To sponsor such a group was a bad business decision on the part of McDonald’s and I am therefore choosing to not spend my hard-earned money to reward it.
