In your community and communities all over the United States, local and national allies (including elected officials, clergy, advocacy groups, and small business owners) are coming together to make change at Walmart and to raise their voices about the impact of Walmart in our neighborhoods.
Given Walmart’s saturation of rural and suburban markets, urban communities are Walmart’s last hope for growth in the United States. Big cities like Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C. are its prime targets. In these cities coalitions are forming because of concerns about Walmart’s history of broken promises to communities and to the associates who work in its stores. Members of these coalitions understand that Walmart often says one thing, and does another. That’s why many communities are refusing to welcome Walmart as a neighbor unless the company agrees to sign a legally binding Community Benefits Agreement, or CBA. Others are simply telling Walmart that it isn’t welcome at all.
