THREAD: This is Steve Hartley, President of the Philadelphia Proud Boys, an @splcenter-designated hate group.

He's Logistics Manager for @Amexpediting, a same-day courier service.

@Amexpediting, do you really want to give a hate group member access to people's home addresses?
2) Steve's a longtime member of the group, too.

This is him posting about the group on Reddit in 2016.
3) And not only has Steve been a Proud Boy since they were founded, he's got deep connections with neo-Nazi members of the group.

This is him with Salvatore Cipolla.
4) And who is Sal Cipolla?

He's a neo-Nazi who openly posts literal antisemitic Nazi propaganda on Facebook.
5) And Sal just keeps going.

This is the kind of person Steve Hartley associates with in the Proud Boys.

And @Amexpediting is giving Steve access to people's home addresses.
6) Here's Steve with the other Proud Boys at an August meetup.

Note that they're using the "okay" symbol used as an in-joke by white nationalists.
7) You can call @Amexpediting at (484) 540-8180 to tell them that one of their employees, Steve Hartley, is the President of the Philadelphia Proud Boys, a violent hate group.
8) Nationwide, the Proud Boys are a threat.

They showed up in Providence on 10/6 to attack protesters.

And in NYC on 10/12, the nine Proud Boys beat three protesters.

Harrisburg PA Proud Boy Max Hare is facing felony charges for that now.…
9) And yet, @Amexpediting is okay with giving not just a member, but a chapter President, Steve Hartley, people's home addresses as part of his work duties.

Call them and tell them that's not okay with you: (484) 540-8180
10) The police won't protect us here, folks.

We need to step up and protect our own communities.

We need to show these people that hate has consequences.

And you can do that with the direct action of getting them fired.
11) Getting fascists fired works.

The people of Philadelphia stood up two weeks ago to say "NO" to hate and get Proud Boy Andrew Kovalic fired.…
13) So contact @Amexpediting and tell them that their employee, Steve Hartley, is a member of the Proud Boys, a violent hate group.

And that he poses for photos in Proud Boy shirts while giving the "okay" sign, a symbol associated with white nationalism.
14) We can do this, folks, but it takes all of us.

We have to be willing to stand up and fight to protect our communities.

This is all of our work, and it's not easy, but we can do it.

All of us together?

We got this.
