Chapel Hill North Carolina Town Council Asks Their Local Triangle United Way to Stop Funding
TO: Mayor and Members of the Chapel Hill Town Council
FROM: Edith Wiggins, Kevin Foy, Bill Strom
SUBJECT: United Way Policy
DATE: October 23, 2000
We ask the Council to direct the Mayor to contact, on behalf of the Chapel Hill Town Council, the Triangle United
Way and to ask the United Way to rescind its double standard regarding discrimination based on sexual orientation.
It is our understanding that the United Way does not itself discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, but
that it permits organizations that it helps fund to engage in such discrimination. The letter should specifically
assert the Council's strong support for a single policy of nondiscrimination, both for the United Way and for all
organizations receiving funding from the United Way.
