Chick-fil-A has once again made headlines for opposing marriage equality and some Raleigh citizens are none too happy about it. Jose Chavira of Raleigh, NC, has created a petition at Change.org titled “North Carolina State University:: Remove Chik-fil-a from the Atrium Food Court.” I have already signed this petition, adding the following reason to my digital signature:
As an NCSU alum, I don’t want my school to harbor a business that wishes to impede the rights and happiness of Wolfpack students.
The petition currently has 194 signatures with a goal of 4,500 signees. Hopefully, NCSU will join the ranks of Sesame Street by dropping its partnership with the fast food chain and releasing a similarly poignant press release:
The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors. Lisa Henson, our CEO is personally a strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD.
Add your signature to the list and put the pressure on NCSU to stand up for ALL Wolfpack students.
