Students speak out against Chick-fil-A
UNF Pride President Mariah Moss was one among many students who spoke out against Chick-fil-A coming to campus.

Reasons varied from Chick-fil-A’s funding of anti-gay hate groups to the question of introducing more healthy dining options to campus life.

Other speakers promised outrage and protest from the LGBT community, should Chick-fil-A come to campus.
