SumOfUs.org Thanks Starbucks for Standing Up For Marriage Equality
March 23, 2012
Washington, DC - The National Organization of Marriage (NOM) is targeting Starbucks because the company recently stood up publicly to support gay marriage legislation in their home state of Washington. The bill’s sponsor, democratic Senator Ed Murray explained how support from major brand name businesses helped convince moderate legislatures to vote for it. Without support from prominent companies like Starbucks, the gay marriage law might have failed.
SumOfUs is calling on its members to sign a “Thank You Card” to Starbucks, for their public support for marriage equality. Over 30,000 people have already signed on SumOfUs’ Thank You Card, overwhelming the 6,000 NOM members pledging to protest Starbucks.
