Democracy

for America Urges North Carolinians to Vote Against Amendment 1 DFA Supports All North Carolina

Families Asks Dems to do Same

Burlington,

VT

Today Democracy for America (DFA) joined alongside a growing number or

organizations, businesses, and community members urging North Carolinians to

vote NO on Amendment 1, a proposed amendment to North Carolinas constitution

that would deny legal rights to thousands of unmarried couples and their

children, including thousands of same-sex couples. Democracy for America has a strong track

record supporting marriage equality throughout the country including advancing

efforts for marriage equality in Maine, Maryland, New Jersey and New

Hampshire.



"Equality is not a privilege, it is a right, said Jim Dean,

Chair of DFA. We cannot ask our gay and lesbian community members and

their families to accept anything less than true equality - Amendment 1 is an

attack on all families regardless of their make-up and should be voted down on

May 8th.

It is time that bigotry take a backseat to true equality, said Arshad Hasan, Executive Director of

DFA. We are a country whose greatest strength is our ability to cherish

all people, regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation. Amendment 1 moves our country and North

Carolina in the wrong direction.
