Scout decision in 'Hamp gets mixed reaction
(June 6, 2001 - Union News)
Reactions were mixed yesterday to the decision by the Hampshire Community United Way to stop giving money to the
Boy Scouts because of their national stand against homosexuality. "I think it's the right decision,"
said Felice Yeskel, director of the Stonewall Center, a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender educational resource
center at the University of Massachusetts. "I think it's very discriminating. It doesn't make sense for the
United Way to engage in discriminatory practices." Daniel C. Dillon, president of the Berkshire United Way
in Pittsfield, said, "I was surprised."
