WASHINGTON, Jan. 17, 2020 – The Sustainable Food Policy Alliance (SFPA) strongly opposes the anti-LGBTQ adoption bill in Tennessee and urges Governor Lee to veto the bill. SFPA founding member companies Danone North America, Mars Incorporated, Nestlé USA, and Unilever United States view this legislation, along with several other discriminatory bills under consideration by the Tennessee legislature, as anti-business. We are disappointed to see the legislature consider discriminatory legislation and strongly urge the Tennessee legislature to defeat these anti-business proposals.
