Target Won't Undo its Harm in Minnesota BUT YOU CAN

     Over 100,000 people signed our open letter calling on Target to make it right after they donated $150,000 to support a Minnesota candidate with ties to a group that condoned the execution of gays. As we reported yesterday, Target told us that they won't be taking ANY corrective action to repair the harm they've caused. If that initial donation was a slap in the face, Target has now delivered a punch in the gut. The stakes are too high in Minnesota to just sit back. The next governor will likely have the opportunity to either sign or veto marriage equality legislation – so HRC will devote $150,000 of our own resources to elect a pro-equality governor and lawmakers in this critical state. To compete with unlimited amounts of corporate cash, we need your help. Will you help us counter Target's donation by chipping in to aid that effort? Donate to the HRC Minnesota PAC now to support marriage equality in these key races. We expected more from these companies. Target has – and no doubt will continue to have – model employment policies for LGBT people.  We will continue to support those efforts, but our sights are now set on the election. With full marriage equality hanging in the balance in Minnesota, it's important that we send a message that we will work tirelessly to elect pro-equality candidates. So with Election Day just over two months away, we're springing into action in the key state of Minnesota in order to advance marriage equality legislation and boost its supporters. With a donation to the HRC Minnesota PAC, you can help. Fight for marriage: Contribute today to back our efforts in the critical state of Minnesota. We all feel the sting of disappointment deeply, but our passion for change and equality runs even deeper.
