    Its awful the LA LGBT Community Center is taking money from Stoli. Even if the Russian atrocities weren’t happening its a slap in the face to LGBT people in recovery. Does this center offer or host recovery programs? If so its blood money of another sort also. Irresponsible.

    Thanks for sharing. It is quite ironic and disappointing that the LA center took this money.

    Just last night I wrote to HRC asking what specific steps they’re taking to ask members not to buy Russian-related commodities. I also asked if they’re planning on asking their corporate sponsors to pull out of the Sochi Olympics but it might be too late for that move.

    But how about all of us telling our local LGBT establishments to forgo Russian-related stuff like vodka. That would be a great grass roots effort and could snow ball into something significant and maybe impact the Putin government.
