Doug Manchester, the wealthy hotel owner who donated $125,000 in critical seed money to put Prop. 8 on the ballot, has launched a cynical public relations campaign by trying to buy off EQCA with a $25,000 donation.
Launched in the summer of 2008 by Californians Against Hate and Cleve Jones, the highly successful boycott is believed to have cost Manchester’s Grand Hyatt more than $7 million in lost business.
To keep putting pressure on Doug Manchester, EQCA and the Courage Campaign are launching the new “Say No To Manchester” web site along with UNITE HERE and Californians Against Hate.
By signing, you will urge Doug Manchester to make a public apology for his $125,000 donation to Prop. 8 and negotiate an honest, fair resolution with boycott organizers.
