Chick-fil-A currently serves thousands of students a year at the University of Louisville.
However, the company has consistently funded groups that fight against LGBT Equality.
Chick-fil-A has donated over $5 million dollars to anti-gay organizations between 2003 - 2010,that money has supported groups such as Focus On The Family, Exodus International, and the Family Research Council. Not to mention the CEO going public admitting all of this.
On the University of Louisville campus Chick-Fil-A is located on the 2nd floor of the Swain Student Activities Center (SAC).. Note from the vendor Sodexo: “Students at the University of Louisville on mandatory meal plans are contributing to the Chick-fil-A Corporation only if they use their meal plan monies to purchase products offered by Chick-fil-A. Students on mandatory meal plans who use their meal plan monies at any other dining venue on campus would not be supporting Chick-fil-A.”SO STUDENTS IF YOU DONT WANT TO SUPPORT CHICK-FIL-A DO NOT USE YOUR MEAL CARD THERE.
As a campus that supports diversity and inclusion.The University of Louisville, it's faculty, staff, and students should not be funding a company that supports anti-equality measures.
Removing this restaurant from the SAC will send a strong message that the University of
Louisville stands up for the rights of all their students, faculty, and staff.
I am proud to be a student of the University of Louisville especially for their progressive views concering the environment and the charitable work throughout the community regardless of race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation and I feel that continuing to have this restaurant on campus even in the limited capacity that it already is undermines the very vaules of the university. Gay rights are human rights and the university should not support a group that is openly against human rights, especially with tuition money which comes from the the federal and state government that most of us students receive in order to attend UofL.
