Boycott TitleHOMOPHOBIA WILL NOT BE TOLERATED
Boycott DescriptionMelaleuca founder and owner Frank VanderSloot espouses his political viewpoints very publicly through billboards and campaign financing--particularly those about not teaching homosexuality in the classroom. He has also publicly condemned same sex relationships, and has launched several high-profile campaigns against same-sex marriage, the presence of homosexuals on television, and against certain homosexual journalists.
His wife Belinda also donated $100,000 to support Proposition 8 on October 28, 2008.
It's one thing for the VanderSloots to be personally opposed to gay rights and same-sex marriage; it's another for them to give money and support to organizations that seek to subjugate a group of people and deny them equal rights and freedom to express who they are.
Boycott Demands1. Revise all company brochures and policies to include that Melaleuca does not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation.
2. Extend the same employee benefits to same-sex couples that heterosexual couples receive.
3. Donate equal or more financial support to organizations that support gay issues and same-sex marriage that the VanderSloots have already donated to those in opposition.
