From the Washington Blade comes news that Target is changing their corporate giving policies. They set up a "policy committee" to advise the CEO on which political activities to fund. They did not say they'd stop meddling in politics thanks to the Citizens United ruling.
Carlson said Target changed its political giving policy because the company realized there was an opportunity "to evolve" its practices.
Asked whether Target's contributions to MN Forward were a factor in this change, Carlson replied, "Well, this has been an evolution, and so based on just generally the 2010 election cycle, we made some changes."
...One source familiar with the changes, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed that Target consulted with some LGBT rights advocates on the change.
Carlson added Target has "a long history" of supporting the LGBT community through political giving, volunteerism and event sponsorship.
For example, Carlson said the retail chain donated to Project 515, a Minnesota LGBT group, and this year saw many team members volunteer at Creating Change, an LGBT rights conference hosted by the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force.
I'll admit that I've not been honoring the Target boycott and I don't know many people who are/were. Does this change your mind? Would you join a boycott since Target has defiantly said they'll continue to donate to campaigns and causes? Or is this enough to get you shopping there again?
