Kraft attacked for backing Gay Games May 13, 2005 6:08 AM

Saw this in another group: "Kraft Foods came under attack this week by the American Family Association, a Mississippi-based anti-gay group, which urges the food maker to drop its corporate sponsorship of the 2006 Gay Games in Chicago. Kraft, headquartered in suburban Chicago, is a business sponsor of the Gay Games and will also sponsor the swimming events. In an e-mail sent Monday, AFA encouraged its 500,000 members to make a personal call to Kraft and "tell them to pull their financial support from the 2006 Gay Games." The group is not, however, calling for an official boycott of Kraft or other corporate sponsors, according to Kathryn Hooks, AFA's director of media." The rest of the story can be seen here: http://news.yahoo.com/s/po/kraftattackedforbackinggaygames I don't know of any coordinated responses to this, but I did go to Kraft's website (www.kraft.com) and send them a message in support of their sponsorship.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Here is the actual web address of American Family Association asking for people to, "Tell Kraft to drop their sponsorship of the 2006 Gay Games in Chicago." http://www.afa.net/activism/IssueDetail.asp?id=161 I'm doing quite the opposite. I'm contacting Kraft and thanking them for their support. I hope you will do the same. The above address has a phone number and a link to the Kraft contact page.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
