Barilla launches massive diversity campaign

  1. I have to say I'm not used to companies trying to right their wrongs. Does this mean I can buy Barilla again without it weighing on my conscience?

    I survived a pregnancy without ChikFilA. (And countless school spirit nights have been foregone, just a donation to the PTA directly with letters of moral indignation at their need to pander for money over the moral cost to the kids).

    I say that to say I just don't know. I may have to wait for the next HRC business index before I start buying again.
    What about you?

    1. As consumers, we demanded that this company strongly reconsider solutions that align with equality and fairness for all consumers. So, how can we fault them for trying.

      Perhaps their actions will lead other large corporations to follow suit. Perhaps they will put their money were their customers want them to. Perhaps we can all learn a lesson about judgement and patience...when the story here is clearly far from over.

      Thank you for sharing the link, I'll be following along in the hopes a better outcome results.

        1. Gosh. And to think we almost crucified the guy :-D

          Lesson learned. Good job.

          1. Newly enlightened and responsive - I can eat my linguini with clams again without being stoned to death here?
