Boycott “The chief” 2009-2010
Boycott Who?: Campus Town stores that sell “chief Illiniwek” merchandise. Focus on the following three bookstores: Follett Bookstore, T.I.S. College Bookstore. The Illini Union Bookstore is currently off our Boycott list.
Students: Purchase your textbooks and school supplies from stores that are NOT profiting from the sale of American Indian imagery. We suggest ordering all of your books online. In addition, let your professors know you support the boycott and would like the class book list before the beginning of the semester. You can also encourage your professors to develop readers, use the online course reserves, or use multimedia at the beginning of the semester to help give students time for the delivery of your online book orders. Ask businesses to stop displaying and selling “chief” merchandise and logos. You can also forward this info to friends and to other listservs.
