On March 21, 2019, the City of San Antonio banned Chick-fil-A from the concessions contract at the SA airport. On that day, Councilmember Roberto C. Treviño announced that he wanted Chick-fil-A banned from the San Antonio airport because “the LGBTQ community” has “come together to voice its disapproval” of the popular restaurant chain. Later in the meeting, Councilmember Manny Pelaez stated that he wanted Chick-fil-A banned from the airport because it “has been funding anti-LGBTQ organizations” and because some people regard the restaurant as “a symbol of hate.”
The city council voted 6 – 4 with one abstention in favor of banning Chick-fil-A from the concessions contract. Efforts to take a revote on the issue failed 6 – 5 in council chambers on April 18, 2019.
This fund has been established to support a lawsuit against the City on behalf of five San Antonio residents who have decided to fight for religious liberty for Chick-fil-A.
Please prayerfully consider supporting this effort. Your donation will be used to pay the administrative fees, filing fees, legal expenses and travel expenses of the legal team representing the plaintiffs. The San Antonio Family Association (SAFA,) a local pro-family advocacy group, is serving as the organizational and support arm for the plaintiffs and will continue its work to educate through public discussions and debates in response to this city council vote.
