Tennessee Equality Project Launches Campaign to Promote Equality-Friendly Businesses

Posted By on Thu, Jan 2, 2014 at 3:22 PM


Business owners across Tennessee who want to show customers that they support equal rights will soon be able to do so with Tennessee Equality Project Foundation's "Equality Means Business" window stickers.

The stickers are intended to show that a business does not discriminate in hiring and treatment of workers regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity.

Business owners can also add their names to TEP's list of businesses that support equality on the organization's public Facebook page.

The "Equality Means Business" campaign kicked off on December 30th in honor of TEP's 10th anniversary.

Honorary co-chairs for the initiative are entrepreneurs Martha Boggs in Knoxville and Randy Rayburn in Nashville and graphic designer Ray Rico (Ray Rico Freelance) in Memphis.

According to the Human Rights Campaign, 61 percent of Fortune 500 companies have non-discrimination policies that include sexual orientation and gender identity.

Business owners who would like a window sticker should email TEP's executive director Chris Sanders.
