Remove Chick-Fil-A from UNM!

      Albuquerque, NM

The dangerous political influence that the Chick-fil-A franchise holds at the University of New Mexico appears to go unnoticed.

The University of New Mexico prides itself on its diverse student body, yet it allows this anti-gay corporation to continually profit on our campus. Neither Chick-fil-A nor UNM have bothered to educate the campus population about what that franchise does with its corporate profits.

To continue to allow Chick-fil-A on our campus (a public campus paid for with tax dollars, I might add) is an offense and direct affront to every student and faculty member, especially the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender ones! What’s more, no New Mexican would support the university helping a private corporation fund hate groups that want to roll back or stop the progress of human and civil rights in our nation.

With every bite of chicken, the corporation sends out messages of hate and bigotry. With every day that the university continues to allow this corporation to profit from its presence on campus, it contributes to the hate and bigotry.

Please take action immediately to remove this corporation from our campus.

Thank you,

UNM Social Justice League

      I am gay, and this isn't right.

      I find that having an actively discriminatory organization conducting business and profiting from this business on a publicly funded University Campus to be inconsistent with the open, friendly and diverse population who attend this University. It is even more disturbing that this organization can utilize the earnings from this venture to further their hateful and discriminatory agenda both within the US as well as overseas.

      It's time to end discrimination in all forms, and taking actions against corporations like Chick-fil-A that are close-minded voices our opinions and empowers us to improve the society we live in.

      I am a queer student and we have a very diverse campus, many of my friends and classmates are LGBT. I don't feel comfortable having a homophobic company represented on the campus I pay for. People are unwittingly supporting homophobic causes by spending their money there. And it's just hostile to LGBT folk to see this symbol of oppression everyday.
