Why this petition matters

Started by Karina Papa

The owner of Chick-Fil-A, S. Truett Cathy, has been quoted saying he only believes in "the biblical definition of the family unit" declaring he does not support same-sex marriage, and his family has given millions to anti-LGBTQ+ organizations including an organization that promotes conversion therapy. 

In 2019 the Chick-Fil-A Foundation said they would stop donating to anti-LGBTQ+ organizations, but this year Dan Cathy, the son of S. Truett Cathy and now the owner of Chick-Fil-A, donated money to the National Christian Charitable Foundation which is fighting against the Equality Act that would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. 

Eden Prairie High School must do better. "Do I belong here?" This question is frequently asked as one of the main agreements, but do LGBTQIA+ students really belong if Chick-Fil-A gives almost $2,000 to our football team? Do LGBTQIA+ students really belong here if fundraisers are being held at Chick-Fil-A's? 

Eden Prairie High School has the resources and capacity to find a business to sponsor us that actually aligns with the values of equity and belonging that our school holds dear. 

How important is student voice to Mr. Virgin?
