Correspondence, memoranda, resolutions, flyers, articles, clippings, reports, sworn statements, newsletters, publicity, photographs,
pamphlets, petitions, and ephemera documenting the activities of the Coors Boycott Committee (CBC), 1975-1997. Based in Los
Angeles, the CBC advocated and coordinated gay and lesbian support for a boycott of Coors beer to protest the company's discriminatory
employment and financial practices.
The Los Angeles based Coors Boycott Committee was formed in 1977 by gay activist Morris Kight and others to advocate and coordinate
a gay and lesbian boycott of Coors Brewery products. By this time Coors was already the target of boycotts by lesbians and
gays, feminists, and other marginalized groups; as well as strikes by organized labor unions due to company practices that
included invasions of employee privacy, discrimination against ethnic minorities, anti-union policies, and financial support
for organizations with similar practices.
