Chick-fil-A claims it will stop donating to anti-LGBTQ groups
2019-11-18

Chick-fil-A claims it's going to stop donating to anti-LGBTQ organizations as it tries to expand its business into more liberal parts of the country and internationally, media reports noted.

The fast food chain got headlines a decade ago when they were caught donating to anti-LGBTQ organizations. At the time, CEO Dan Cathy defended the donations and stated his opposition to same-sex marriage. Earlier this year, the Chick-fil-A Foundation's tax forms showed that it was donating to anti-LGBTQ organizations like the Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Atlanta's Paul Anderson Youth Home.

The new initiative for the Chick-fil-A Foundation said that it will focus on education, hunger and homelessness by giving to the Covenant House International ( pro-LGBTQ ), Junior Achievement USA and local food banks.

There is currently a few restaurants in Chicago, including one in the Gold Coast neighborhood ( at 30 E. Chicago Ave. ), and others in the Loop ( at 177 N. State St. ), at Eats on Sedgwick and at the UIC ( University of Illinois at Chicago ) Student Center East. On Nov. 14, a small group protested the opening of a Chick-fil-A in Deerfield.
