Equality NC director: Public awareness key to defeating amendment (video)

North Carolinians won’t get a chance to vote on a constitutional amendment defining marriage for another six months. But on Tuesday volunteers for Equality NC will be at the polls talking with registered voters about the  May 8, 2012 ballot initiative.

Organizers in Asheville, Raleigh, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and Charlotte will be discussing how the vaguely worded amendment could have several unintended consequences and negatively impact job creation for the state. Voters will also be asked to ‘Take the Pledge’ to vote against the amendment next May.

Stuart Campbell, the new executive director for Equality NC believes raising public awareness about what the amendment will do is key to defeating the measure.

Campbell appeared on News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon over the weekend. To hear an excerpt of that radio interview, click below.
