Pick up the phone to help defeat the “anti-LGBT amendment”
On September 12 the North Carolina legislature will hear amendments for the general election ballot of 2012. One of these amendments is House Bill 777/Senate Bill 106, otherwise known as the “anti-LGBT amendment.” This ridiculous amendment would ban same-sex marriage, prohibit civil unions and nullify domestic partnership benefits.

Equality North Carolina needs your help to make sure this amendment doesn’t get onto the ballot.

All you have to do is sign up for a shift to make phone calls. (Don’t be scared, it’s easy!) You can even do it right from your own house — all you need is a phone and a computer.

You can sign up for a slot from noon to 9pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of every week up until the vote by clicking here: http://bitly.com/ENC_VirtualPB

Once you sign up you’ll receive a short training and then you can makes calls to urge voters to contact their legislators and ask them to oppose this hateful anti-LGBT amendment. You’ll even be able to patch your callers through straight to their legislator!

Please sign up to make calls now!

1. I have called several times during the summer
and will call one final time on Sunday. I hope we can prevent the amendment from making the ballot. If we don't, then I don't see a victory strategy for us in that campaign.
