Rally Against Anti-LGBT Amendment

NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina and other non-profits from across the state will be supporting Equality NC today at their rally at the General Assembly against the proposed anti-LGBT marriage amendment currently being considered.  If passed, this amendment will create a ballot measure for 2012 that would create a constitutional amendment that would define marriage as between one man and one woman. It would also bar civil unions and prevent businesses and government agencies from providing domestic partner benefits to all unmarried couples, regardless of sexual orientation. North Carolina law already prohibits same-sex marriage, but this bill would put this up to a vote by North Carolinians and, if passed, would write this discrimination into our state’s founding document.

If you believe everyone deserves the same rights, be they reproductive rights or the right to marriage and domestic partner benefits, come out and join us.
