Petition Asks P&G To End Olympic Sponsorship

Aug 13, 2013

An online petition is urging Cincinnati-based Procter and Gamble to pull its sponsorship from next year's Winter Olympics.

Gay-rights activists are leading the push for a boycott on the website change-dot-org, saying Russia has a repressive, anti-gay culture. P-and-G is an official sponsor of the Olympics through 2020. The company has yet to comment.
