Beth Shaw of YogaFit in Los Angeles is spearheading a grassroots protest against Nike’s decision to continue its relationship with NFL player Michael Vick, who pleaded not guilty last week to federal dog-fighting charges.
On Monday, Shaw said she would send an e-mail to 60,000 teachers and students urging them to boycott Nike and mail their Nike wear to the company’s Beaverton, Oregon headquarters. She has also forbidden her master teachers to wear Nike products in class. What do you think? Should Nike terminate the contract before Vick’s trial?
