Remove Chick-Fil-A from the MU

According to Arizona State University's Academic Affairs manual, sourced from the State of Arizona's Board of Regents Manual, "ASU expressly prohibits harassment, discrimination, and retaliation by employees, students, contractors, or agents of the university based on protected status, including race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, and gender identity." Chick-Fil-A has made clear that as a business organization, it has no intention of conforming to this policy.

The University, however, has a long-standing partnership with Chick-Fil-A. The company's president, Dan Cathy, publicly declared that “we’re inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage. And I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude that thinks we have the audacity to redefine what marriage is all about.” The corporation has also made millions of dollars in donations to anti-gay groups through its charitable arm, Winshape.

It is time for Arizona State University to live up to its policy, stand with its LGBT students and their allies, and inform Chick-Fil-A that it has a choice: If may either stop engaging in behavior intended to systematically discriminate against an entire class of Americans, or it may close its restaurant in the university's Memorial Union.

      A university is intended to be a place of personal growth and an increase in knowledge. By allowing Chik Fil A to continue catering to students, ASU is not only sending the message that it is acceptable to discriminate, but is also actively funding a company that is involved in legislation that calls for the murder of gay people.
