250,000 Signatures To Be Delivered To Target

Gay rights activists will descend upon Target’s downtown Minneapolis headquarters tomorrow (Friday) at noon to deliver more than 250,000 signatures on petitions protesting the retail giant’s donation to a political fund that is running TV ads for Republican candidate for Minnesota Governor Tom Emmer. Emmer has ties to anti-gay groups, and has called members of those groups “good people.” Watch for live coverage of the event on The UpTake.
