Miller Brewing Protest Continues: Milwaukee Civic Associations Contacted

Contact: Kiera M. McCaffrey, Director of Communications, Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, 212-371-3191,


NEW YORK, Oct. 22 /Standard Newswire/ -- Catholic League president Bill Donohue explained the latest strategy for dealing with Miller's sponsorship of anti-Catholicism:


"We're not going away. After having sent the most unbelievable photos of decadent anti-Catholicism to all the priests, ministers, rabbis and imams in Milwaukee, we are now hitting the civic associations. Because there are so many, we are choosing a select group each week. Today's mailing targets the following organizations:


  • Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce


  • Federation For Civic Action


  • Greater Milwaukee Convention


  • Visitor Information Center


  • American Indian Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin


  • Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin


  • VISIT Milwaukee Corporate Office


  • Community Development


  • Sherman Park Community Association


  • Community Enterprises of Milwaukee


"There will be ten more next week. And so on. We want all the leaders in Milwaukee--in both religious and secular circles--to know exactly the kind of Catholic-bashing event that Miller Brewing recently sponsored. We are looking for a pledge from Miller indicating that it will no longer sponsor public attacks on Roman Catholicism. Once that is achieved, we will cancel the boycott and the anti-Miller PR campaign."


To contact Miller, write to Julian Green, spokesman, at, call 1-800-MILLER 6 or send a fax to 414-931-3732.
