Salesforce is quietly maintaining a contract with US Customs and Border Protection, providing an operational backbone for the agency’s human rights violations and separation of families at the border. People are protesting, nonprofits are refusing donations from Salesforce, and vendors are pulling out of their conference.
Dreamforce is Salesforce’s flagship conference. Thousands of people from around the world will be in attendance. This is the perfect time to take action and ask Salesforce to drop their contract with CBP.
On September 25th, we’re taking our demands offline and into the face of CEOs Marc Benioff and Keith Block.

Salesforce’s executives are trying to hide from this. They think they can placate their employees and protesters by putting out misleading statements and making donations. We need to prove them wrong. We’re crowdfunding bus ads in San Francisco, right near Salesforce HQ and right before their big yearly conference, Dreamforce, to make sure they know we’re not going to stop until they #CancelTheContract. We need to raise $5,000 to make it happen. Will you chip in?Help crowdfund ads
Salesforce prides itself on being a socially engaged and responsible company. But its actions show otherwise. Below is a list of speakers scheduled to appear at the company’s flagship conference in San Francisco in September. Please tweet at them and encourage them to pull out unless Salesforce stops helping Border Patrol violate human rights.
