Levis joins the money throw-down to support the gays/gayelles

"Levi Strauss and Co. is joining the battle to strike down California's discriminatory Prop 8, which seeks to deny gays and lesbians the right to marry.

The forward-thinking jean company had donated $25,000 to Equality for All, the coalition leading the No On 8 campaign.

In doing so, Levi's continues its tradition of civil rights support. In the 1940s, the company ceased the practice of segregation within its factories and more recently the company was one of the first Fortune 500 company to offer health benefits to the domestic partners of its unmarried employees".
