To not bring Chick-fil-a to campus

This petition had 421 supporters


This is important, because it will negatively impact the entire university, greater Valparaiso community, and its reputation. The image presented by Chick-fil-a does not coincide with the inclusive and diverse mission of Valparaiso University. The funding of organizations with a recent negative history and reputation with LGBTQ+ community by Chick-fil-a is completely unacceptable. Students will be able to use meal plan money at this establishment and will be therefore, indirectly funding these same organizations. We pay over $40,000 to attend a completely inclusive and diverse institution, do we really want a portion of that money to go to a company like this? Having this restaurant on campus is an action which not only completely disregards the voice and safety of the LGBTQ+ community, but will create a safety issue among the entire community. While we do not anticipate any physical violence as a result, the building of this Chick-fil-a will cultivate an unwelcoming atmosphere. If the voices of one minority can be so completely disregarded, who is to say other minorities will not be silenced?
