Boycott Campbell’s Soup

2 08 2010

Dear Campbell’s,

Campbell’s Soup has a 10 year contract with Request Foods in Holland, Michigan. Request Foods along with Family Research Council placed a full page ad in the Holland Sentinel July 23, Is Homosexuality a Civil Rights Issue? This ad displayed alleged myths and facts about the gay community. But people with opposing beliefs can’t objectively evaluate each other on those very things on which they so strongly disagree. Basically, it was a desperate attempt to undermine any progress that the LGBTQ community had made.  The ad was purposefully divisive and was intended to cause discord. That does not seem very family focused or Christian-like.

Your website talks about diversity and inclusion. “Creating and marketing products effectively to an increasingly diverse world requires a strong commitment to diversity in every aspect of our business. Our company-wide diversity efforts encourage all employees to bring their uniqueness and individuality to work every day.” I assume this does not include anyone from the LGBTQ community. Based on your partnership with Request Foods, I assume that your diversity and inclusion are selective.

I ask that you reconsider your affiliation with Request foods. The Gay dollar is the same as the Christian or Heterosexual dollar. Money is money.  Until I hear otherwise, I will tell all my gay/straight friends and family to boycott Campbell’s.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Julie Ann August
