Cartoon of the Week – Tech Execs Take a Stand

CotW-Benioff

This week, Marc Benioff announced that Salesforce is cancelling all events in Indiana, in protest against the state’s new anti-gay law. Coined the “Religious Freedom Restoration Act,” the law allows individuals to use religious grounds as a defense when they are sued – and is aimed specifically toward instances where lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender individuals feel they were discriminated against.

Much of the tech community is also part of the LGBT community, and we applaud Benioff for using his political power to support equality.
