Californians Against Hate Targets Mega Donor Terry Caster — The 2nd Biggest Donor In the Country
Terry Caster owns A-1 Self Storage Company A-1 Self Storage has 40 locations throughout California with over 4 million storage units. Mr. Caster and his family have contributed $693,000 to the Protect Marriage campaign. That makes the Casters the 2nd largest individual donors to Yes on Prop 8.
“This guy must really not like same-sex marriage,” said Fred Karger, Campaign Manager of Californians Against Hate in his published blog in The Huffington Post. “Mr. Caster and many of his eight sons and daughters and their spouses have given a combined total of $693,000 to the Protect Marriage campaign between January and November 4, 2008.”
We are curious as to why Mr. Caster saw fit to contribute so much money to this campaign of fear and hate. We are asking our millions of friends and supporters all over the United States to help us by Calling Terry Caster and asking him why he and his family are so strongly against marriage equality.

Californians Against Hate officially kicked off its campaign to identify the major donor funders of Proposition 8 on Friday, July 18, 2008 in San Diego with a lunchtime demonstration and rally against hate. We announced our first action against one of the largest donors to qualify Prop 8, Doug Manchester, CEO of the Manchester Financial Group.
Mr. Manchester, who owns three hotels, contributed $125,000 this year to take away marriage equality in California. Californians Against Hate called for a boycott of all three of Doug Manchester’s Hotels. They are the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel and the Grand del Mar Resort both in San Diego and the Whitetail Club and Resort in McCall, Idaho.
We believe that the truth should be known about exactly who funded their campaign of hate.
