Take one minute to keep homophobia away from UVa!

Chick-fil-A is not just a restaurant: They also fund hate. In particular, they fund hate of the gay members of the UVa community.

Is Chick-Fil-A anti-gay? Its president, Dan Cathy, happily assures its customers: "Guilty as charged!" (CNN: bit.ly/CNNchickfila).

Chicago is working to ban the restaurants (ABC: bit.ly/ChicagoBlocksCFA). Boston lawmakers are following suit (ABC: bit.ly/BostonCFAletter). Northeastern University successfully blocked the construction of a Chick-Fil-A: (bit.ly/NEscrapsCFA).

We need to fight to keep this company off our grounds and away from our money. Simply change the restaurant in Pav XI to one of a million alternatives. Perhaps Subway? Raising Cains? I think we'd be OK with any restaurant that doesn't donate the money we spend to anti-gay organizations.

Chick-fil-A is not just a restaurant - they also fund hate. In particular, they fund hate of the gay members of the UVa community.

Will you take 1 minute to sign a petition encouraging UVa to replace Chick-fil-A with a different restaurant?

Thank you for your support!
