WINNING TOGETHER We are millions of people taking action for progressive change

Singer/songwriter Brandi Carlile announced this morning that she has cancelled her appearance at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women conference because Kirstjen Nielsen is also a speaker. Her cancellation follows similar announcements from Hillary Clinton and dream hampton on Friday. CREDO Action, Define American, Bend the Arc, and Families Belong Together are working with other speakers to urge them to refuse to share the stage with Nielsen. CREDO’s petition calling on Fortune to disinvite Nielsen has been signed by more than 50,000 people.

CREDO Action campaign manager Jelani Drew-Davi released the following statement:

“Yet another powerful woman is refusing to use her power to help Kirstjen Nielsen rehabilitate her image. We deeply appreciate Brandi Carlile joining Hillary Clinton and dream hampton in taking a bold stand and refusing to share a stage with Kirstjen Nielsen.”

“Fortune Magazine doesn’t seem to get it. If they had listened to the more than 50,000 grassroots activists who signed a petition calling on them to disinvite Nielsen, they would still have powerful women leaders like Hillary Clinton, dream hampton and Brandi Carlile attending their event. Instead, Fortune is left with a woman who put children in cages and self-inflicted damage to their reputation. Fortune needs to see the writing on the wall, stop hiding their bad decision behind the First Amendment, and show real journalistic integrity by canceling the Nielsen session immediately.
