The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors. Lisa Henson, our CEO is personally a strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD.

There’s been a lot of social media attention on Chick-Fil-A of late. I’ve not posted about the company’s donations and anti-gay beliefs as the chain isn’t big in Minnesota. However, the fact that yet another company is standing up for equality (and “dumping” Chik-Fil-A) should be a sign for businesses in Minnesota that it’s time to speak out against this mean-spirited amendment.
