LGBT activists have been protesting against fruit drink producer Bolthouse Farms over the founders 100k contribution to proposition 8.
LGBT activist Lane Hudson has been advising Bolthouse Farms for the last month. From his email to Joe My God it lists improvements that Bolthouse has made internally:
"Bolthouse Farms sponsored the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force LA Awards Brunch as a Gold Sponsor and the CEO personally contributed $5K to their No on 8 work. Bolthouse Farms was also a corporate table sponsor of the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner.These are very positive changes! Thank you all for your continued activism in urging them to be a socially responsible corporation. Californians Against Hate who have been the leaders in this boycott and calling for change have declared an end to the boycott and protests.
"In addition, they have clarified their non-discrimination policy to include sexual orientation. They also clarified their benefits policy to include dependent children of same sex relationships. They also edited their website, corporate philosophy and corporate mission to reflect what a consumer products company should be. It's a great deal of progress since the new CEO took the reigns a mere 12 weeks ago and since I began advising him a month ago."
