HRC's Video & Letter Campaign to Target & Best Buy

HRC reported earlier this week that the Target Corp and Best Buy donated a combined total of $250,000 to the political committee MN Forward, a political action committee headed by Brian McClung, a former spokesman for Gov. Tim Pawlenty.

HRC representatives explained that MN Forward's mission is to "...elect as governor an anti-LGBT state representative with a long history of attacks on LGBT Americans. This representative's campaign even donated to a controversial 'punk-rock Christian ministry' whose leader has advocated executing gays and lesbians!"

"After all these two companies have done to build a fair and equitable workplace, it's a slap in the face," said HRC president Joe Salmonese. "In years past, Target and Best Buy consistently received 100 percent ratings on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Corporate Equality Index."

So HRC has drafted an open letter to Target and Best Buy asking them to make it right by donating an equal amount of money to support candidates that fight for equality. But they need your help to make that happen.
