Target does not believe that a constitutional fight over the issue is good for Minnesota or the state’s ability to attract jobs and grow the economy. Consistent with our long-standing support of civic engagement, we are encouraging our team members to exercise their right to vote.
Target Corp. statement to media
I posted about this earlier today, but wanted to repost the quote in its entirety. So very happy to see another corporation ‘come out’ against this mean-spirited amendment. Unfortunately, the other side is already lashing out at Target for simply supporting equality.
