Statement by Rick Jacobs, founder of Courage Campaign on today’s protests against Chick-Fil-A:

From politics to business to culture, as a nation we see an historic shift towards equality for all.  Yet a few, like Chick-Fil-A and it’s president continue to discriminate against millions of Americans, stand in the way of progress and stand in the way of progress.  History will look unfavorably on the actions of Chick-Fil-A.  We stand in solidarity with those standing for one nation of all Americans who express what this is all about – love – by holding ‘kiss-in’s’ at Chick-Fil-A stores across the country today.  That’s why we launched ‘Eat Mor Equality’ to help organize events and share stories.”
