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.
