Wells Fargo refused to back down from Focus On the Family, even though it cost them Focus On the Family’s business. Finally, a company that doesn’t just cave in and sell out the GBLT community!
Chris Hammond, a vice president of business development for Wells Fargo & Co., the fifth largest U.S. bank by assets, said the bank provided a $50,000 grant to support the leadership counsel of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. He said it did not, however, agree to match contributions as GLAAD had advertised and Focus criticized.
“That being said, we do support many communities, and we’re proud to be a diverse organization,” Hammond said. “We’re proud of our support of the GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender) community.”
And I am proud of Wells Fargo for the same exact reason.
