Please take a moment to sign a petition to Nike, asking them to drop their sponsorship of Michael Vick, who was indicted last week on dog fighting charges. Witnesses say that Vick and his friends not only fought pit bulls, but they also killed the “losers” in horrible ways.
There is a link here to a short petition asking Nike to drop Michael Vick. They produce a T-shirt that calls him a “hero for children”, and they produce and sell his line of shoes. In their favor, they DID just decide not to produce a new line, but they still make money off the old ones.

Please ask Nike to cut their ties to Michael Vick. The publicity from the trial will help bring attention to pit fighting, which can only be a good thing, but if Vick loses his endorsements, it will have a bigger impact on the teens who buy his products.
