A list of companies who donated to pass Prop 8.
On Election Day November 4, 2008, the most highly contested ballot measure in California was Proposition 8. Entitled â€œEliminates the Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marryâ€, the purpose of Proposition 8 was to amend the state constitution to remove the constitutional right of gays and lesbians to marry.
Proponents of Prop 8 waged a successful campaign to strip lesbian and gay citizens of their civil rights aided in large part to the nearly $40 million they raised. Many of these donations came from businesses throughout California and across the country.
These businesses have the right to support whatever ballot measures they want, but fair-minded citizens of all sexual orientations also have the right to take their money elsewhere and not patronize businesses that support bigotry. This site is not a witch-hunt but is a tool intended to help people make informed decisions when they shop for products and services. This site hopes to overcome some of the limitations of existing Prop 8 donor databases on the web and in time hopes to become a useful repository of all companies in the U.S. with anti-gay policies.
