Say No to Laura Ingraham in Bellevue

A preacher of hate is coming to our backyard. On September 21, a libertarian-conservative think-tank called the 'Freedom Foundation' will host Laura Ingraham as the key-note speaker for their annual fundraiser in Bellevue. Ingraham is a white nationalist Fox News host who, among other horrific rhetoric, has been pushing the "white replacement theory" that led to the most recent mass shooting in El Paso, TX. She has also promoted on her show a white supremacist that wore a t-shirt celebrating the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter.

We cannot let this dangerous ideology go unopposed in our backyard, and we can't allow the Freedom Foundation to profit off of Ingraham and use the funds to continue to attack workers' rights. Please use the link below to email the Hyatt Regency Bellevue's manager and ask them to cancel Laura Ingraham's appearance at their hotel:

To send an even stronger message you can call the hotel directly to register your complaint: (425) 462-1234

And finally, there is a counter-protest during her appearance scheduled for Saturday, September 21 at 5:30 p.m. outside the hotel (900 Bellevue Way NE, Bellevue): https://www.facebook.com/events/706486849800476/
