Sleeping Giants co-founder Nandini Jammi announced in a Medium post this week that she’s leaving the advertising activism organization, which has been credited with pressuring more than 4,000 companies to pull advertising dollars from Breitbart News and helping launch the recent #StopHateforProfit boycott against Facebook.
