Remove Chick-fil-a from the student union at the University of North Texas

    2. Petition by

      Joseph Billeaudeau

      Denton, TX

While Chick-fil-A denies having an "agenda against anyone," an investigation by Equality Matters revealed that Chick-fil-A's charitable arm, WinShape, donated nearly $2 million to anti-gay groups in 2009 alone. That $2 million supported groups such as Focus On The Family, Exodus International, and the Family Research Council.


UNT prides itself on being a diverse, open and inclusive campus community. Unfortunately, maintaining a contract with an anti-gay vendor like Chick-fil-A undermines what makes this university so great.

As a student at the University of North Texas, I ask that profit from students not be be used to discriminate, or politicaly oppress the LGBT community.  I demand that University remove Chick-fil-A from the Union! 

NOTE: We encourage everyone to join this campaign, but If you're a student, staff member, faculty member or alumni, please say so in the "Why People Are Signing" section. Thanks!

University of North Texas, President

      Do you recognize this quote? "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Does it say anywhere "judge those that are different or that may somehow frighten you and then use the position you have to marginalize them "? Pleas stop attempting to spread fear and hatred, there is enough of that in the world already.

      I feel it is important to show corporations it is not OK to support hatred and inequality. Even is created equal and should be treated as such.

      This organization is free support what they want, but it is not free of judgement. I do not want to see nor consume from a restaurant that promotes hate and discrimination. It is immoral and wrong.

      I am a Christian. Jesus told us that when someone wants to take something from us, we should add to what they want - want my coat I'll give you my shirt. So, this is, in a sense, my shirt. May you know the God of hope.
