A big reason why I went to work for Starbucks, where I’ve proudly worked for nearly 7 years, was because of their inclusiveness of the LGBTQ community. Will you join me in urging Starbucks to continue to be a strong LGBTQ ally by including ALL families in the paid parental leave policy? http://plus.nationbuilder.com/starbucks_niko
I am a transgender male and Starbucks is a place that I, and my LGBTQ friends who also work for the company, can be authentic. I’m writing today because I was surprised to learn that the paid leave Starbucks offers to store employees does not extend to fathers or adoptive parents -- a policy that hurts LGBTQ parents.

Every family of every kind deserves time with their loved ones.
