VICTORY: Whole Foods Reverses English-Only Policy

Whole Foods suspended two Albuquerque employees for complaining after they were told they weren’t allowed to speak Spanish at work. So Pat Davis of ProgressNow New Mexico created a MoveOn Petition demanding that the company change its discriminatory English-only policy.

Within a week, MoveOn members delivered the petitions’15,000 signatures to Whole Foods’ headquarters in Austin, Texas, and Whole Foods co-CEO Walter Robb posted a statement apologizing for the ill-conceived policy and announced that it had been reversed.
