Joining them will be Lee Storrow, recently elected member of the Chapel Hill City Council who will make a few comments about Amendment One.
Amendment One will be voted on by all NC registered voters on May 8th or in early voting. If passed, this Amendment would deny legal and medical rights to the 220,000 couples in civil unions in NC. 80% of these couples are heterosexual and 20% are gay. Polls show that the general population of the state is against the amendment but of likely voters it has a chance to pass. To stop writing in discrimination and inequality into the NC Constitution, we need to have a strong progressive voter turn out - in early voting which starts on April 19 through to the election day on May 8th. The Community Church is helping to coordinate phone banking five nights a week.
