Meeting Tomorrow AV Rental Announces Support for Actions Taken by Contractor at Anti-Gay Rally
Company Supports Actions of DC Podiums, Refunds Money to the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission, and Announces In-Kind Donation for Opposition Group.
Washington, DC, November 19, 2009 - Meeting Tomorrow, the leading supplier of corporate nationwide audio visual rentals and services, today announced its support for the actions taken by its contractor, DC Podiums, and owner Chuck Fazio, in relation to the events surrounding a rally protesting anti-hate crimes legislation in Washington DC on Monday.
The rally was organized by the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission. This organization ordered from Meeting Tomorrow audio visual equipment rentals and services for a press conference. Meeting Tomorrow sub-contracted with Chuck Fazio of DC Podiums to provide the podium rental and audio visual support services for this event.
When the press conference ended, and his service to the organization had been rendered, Meeting Tomorrow's contractor allowed a group of gay-rights activists who were present to use his equipment to voice their opposing perspective.
Meeting Tomorrow supports the contractor's actions and denounces the inflammatory behavior of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission.
While Meeting Tomorrow chooses to remain neutral regarding political matters, we believe that the actions of this organization crossed the line from politics into hate-mongering, says Mark Aistrope, founder and CEO of Meeting Tomorrow. We support the actions of DC Podiums and Chuck Fazio, and believe he was within his rights to offer his podium and audio visual services to the opposing protesters after his service obligation to this organization had been fulfilled.
Meeting Tomorrow also announced that they will work with the opposing organizations present at the rally to provide in-kind donations of audio visual equipment rentals and services for a future event.
Meeting Tomorrow will also refund the money collected from the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission.
