Walton Family Funds LGBT Initiatives, Opposition to Arkansas SAFE Act


Recommended Posts

Daily Signal

Families of four trans-identifying youth and two doctors, represented by the American Civil Liberties Union, testified last month against the Arkansas law banning sex-reassignment treatment for minors. Behind the effort to strike down Arkansas’ Save Adolescents From Experimentation (SAFE) Act is the wealthiest family in the nation—heirs of Walmart founder Sam Walton’s fortune.

The Walton Family Foundation issued public statements and signed an amicus brief opposing the SAFE Act. Meanwhile, second- and third-generation members of the Walton family have funneled millions of dollars into statewide LGBTQ initiatives. Alice Walton, daughter of Walmart founder Sam Walton, together with her nephew Tom Walton and his wife Olivia Walton, has appeared at the forefront of this cause.

LGBTQ Advancement Fund

The Alice L. Walton Foundation and Olivia and Tom Walton through the Walton Family Foundation launched a $1 million LGBTQ+ advancement fund after the Arkansas Legislature passed the SAFE Act in June 2021. The Waltons’ fund offered grants to organizations in Arkansas that “provide critical services to the state’s LGBTQ+ community.”:snip:

I  hope no one is in any way surprised at this. We see this over and over.

 I sure think Sam Walton would be. 

Sam should have spent some time reading about the Rockefeller &  Carnegie Family.
