While precise numbers are not known, it is believed the number of boycotts has grown markedly in the past fifty years.

In this lesson, students study how boycotts have been used throughout U.S. history to help promote economic, social and political change. After researching current boycott targets, students create promotional flyers providing a glimpse at the goals people today hope to achieve through this consumer market action.
