Room & Board, a Minneapolis-based retailer offering modern American-made furniture and accessories, today announced it has joined the Minnesotans United for All Families coalition in opposing Minnesota’s freedom-limiting marriage amendment.

“Room & Board is dedicated to helping customers create homes they love. We recognize that the joy found in one’s home extends far beyond our surroundings to the people with whom we spend our lives. To that end, we have long supported efforts dedicated to strengthening home and family. We oppose the amendment to the Minnesota Constitution banning marriage for same-sex couples.

Each and every day we celebrate diversity. We take pride in providing a progressive, balanced and positive work environment that is based on trust, fairness and respect. This core philosophy shapes the relationships we have with our customers, vendor partners and employees.

Our holistic wellness approach supports the well-being of our employees and their loved ones. We have offered domestic partnership benefits for nearly 20 years. Please join us in recognizing the strength of inclusion by voting ‘No’ this November.”
