The coalition also launched a Change.org petition drive asking signatories to take a pledge “to join the global boycott of ALL Hilton-owned hotels until the company cancels its plan to establish a hotel on the site of a bulldozed Uyghur mosque in China.”

On September 8, the coalition delivered a letter to Hilton headquarters in Virginia giving the corporation one week to end the hotel agreement.
