Target: We're Neutral On Marriage Ban

Target Corporation says they'll be releasing no official statement on Minnesota's coming ballot referendum to ban same-sex marriage.
"Our position at this particular time is that we are going to be neutral on that particular issue, as we would be on other social issues that have polarizing points of view," CEO Gregg Steinhafel said. "We're a retail store, we welcome everybody," he added. "We have a broad team-member base, every shape and size and color. And so we are a very inclusive organization....We're going to continue to monitor, we're going to continue to assess, and see how that develops." Minneapolis-based Target has a long record of supporting gay and lesbian causes, including offering domestic partner benefits and being a major donor to Project 515, a group working to see that gay couples are treated the same as straight couples under Minnesota law.
