Stop using Anti-Gay Chick-Fil-A Restaurant as a vendor on campus

The University of Tennessee added a referendum to its non-discrimination policy to include sexual orientation back in 1999 as a result of the strong support from the student body. Yet the fast food chain Chick Fil A has a strong presence on campus and is a vendor for student meal plans. As of 2009 Chick Fil A gave more than 2 million in funds to Anti-GLBT organizations. The University of Tennessee I believe has made a committment of Non-discrimination to not only the diversity and inclusion of all its students but also to GLBT students and faculty. It is important that businesses on campus share that same level of respect and inclusion. Please ask the University of Tennessee to dismiss Chick Fil A as a vendor on campus.

      I will not attend a school which has a current partnership with Chick-Fil-A. By allowing this company into our schools you are sending a message that you support hate. Educators are far too smart to allow such an idiotic company into a learning environment. Do the right thing, give Chick-Fil-A the boot.

      The University of Tennessee is an institution of higher learning, they should not be doing business with those who hate.

      Even though I am not a student at UT I am a Tennessee taxpayer here in Nashville. As a taxpayer I do not believe that a state institution should not promote hate. Having a eating place on campus that is anti-Gay is just wrong.

      I am a UT Alumni, Booster, and my son attends UT as a freshman engineering student. I won't eat at CF any more, they are homophobic and hateful.
