"Grab Your Wallet" Boycott

Boycotts may or may not be a good approach to protest in the current disastrous political climate. However, various boycotts have definitely been suggested, and especially promoted by a group called "Grab Your Wallet." Here's their list of corporations and why this group suggests boycotting them: https://grabyourwallet.org/

In the news today: the GrabYourWallet boycott of L.L.Bean, caused by a large (and potentially illegal) donation to a PAC by a member of the Bean family.

I'm more or less chagrined that I just made an L.L.Bean order this morning before learning about the boycott. I'm not sure what I'll be doing.
