Lori Kinczel Former Den Leader Tiger Cubs asks the United Way to Stop Funding the BSA


Dear Sir/Madam:

Thank you for sharing with United Way in Chicago your views on the Boy Scouts of America. We will share your views with our community volunteers who assist United Way in making funding decisions for the benefit of the community.

Dear sir,

Until very recently, I was a den leader for a tiger cub group in Colorado. I joined the group knowing about the anti gay feeling but thought that I could help effect change here in our small community. We spent a lot of time discussing the issue and I guess the bottom line is that if we oppose the anti gay stance that the boyscouts have taken, we loose our ability to continue with scouting.

Sadly, I resigned my job, because I feel stronger about acceptance and kindness than the boy scouts do. I am now developing my own Campfire boys and girls group up here. They have an all inclusive policy that they are really proud of and it feels great to be part of a scouting organization that we can fully support.

I am writing to ask you to please stop supporting the boy scouts and their anti gay policies. There are many other wonderful groups that are worthy of your funding, whose beliefs fit in with yours. The boy scouts do not.

Please take a stand. Please speak out against injustice with your dollars and be leaders in the world who show that you care about all kids and adults.

Thank you, Lori Kinczel
