North Carolina Legislature May Vote Today on Anti-Marriage Equality Bill
September 12, 2011 by Karin Quimby, Political & Education Director, Project One America
Today HRC and Equality North Carolina staff and volunteers are pulling out all the stops to ensure that the anti-marriage equality amendment goes down in defeat. The delivery of 45,000 postcards to legislators is underway, as is the delivery of a letter signed by nearly 500 clergy and people of faith. The NC legislature is poised to take up the discriminatory bills this week, and will likely vote today or tomorrow. Should they pass these bills, a constitutional amendment to ban marriage equality will appear on the 2012 ballot.
If you live in North Carolina, your legislator needs to hear from you today. Please contact your legislators right now and urge them to oppose these hateful bills.
Take Action! Tell your representatives that the legislature was sent to Raleigh to tackle jobs, the economy and the state budget, not to advance a divisive social agenda.
Volunteer at one of our in-person phonebanks in Raleigh, Greensboro, Asheville, and Pinehurst and find out about our rally for equality tomorrow.
If you’re not able to join us at one of our in-person phonebanks, we’ve made it easy for you to help from your home, your office or anywhere in the state through our virtual phonebanks. Sign up today!
