This was a robed protest. Henna Chevrolet is a sustaining mega donor to Agape PRC. We sent them a letter registered mail that they received. We flooded them with postcards. No reply so game on! We protested legally on the public easement between the lot and the access road on their biggest sales day of the month to let customers know where their money is going when they buy from Henna. (For our safety, we didn't post this protest publicly in advance.)
The results were General Manager Mark Rowe came out and said: 'I attended the Agape Gala with my wife, we saw your protest there and we were really uncomfortable at the gala. We didn’t know what was going on. Henna is not a religious organization and won’t be supporting them next year. We gave more to the People’s Community Clinic than to Agape. We support a lot of charities. We got the postcards from you and didn’t know how to respond. We hoped it would blow over. I didn’t see the letter. We don’t want to do anything controversial. We are interested in working to resolve this. I will consult with the owner about making a statement and will get back to you on Monday. How much longer do y’all think you’ll be here?' He took our card. We will be monitoring their future donations to see if the promise not to donate to Agape again is kept and to see what kind of statement they publish.
Two internet sales people came out and read our flyer. One employee came to debate, but she didn’t look polished enough to be in management or sales. Everyone else was totally calm and just trying to find out what we were protesting. We got honks every 5 minutes or so from the interstate and frontage road! This was great because the Henna staff heard them too. Bad for business. Protesting works, y'all! Hope you'll join us soon!
