How soon before Amendment One is off the books? Join NC Policy Watch August 7th for this special Crucial Conversation

Posted By Clayton Henkel On August 1, 2014 @ 8:10 am In Uncategorized | Comments Disabled

This week’s marriage equality ruling [1] by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in the case of Bostic v. Schaeffer  has prompted a great deal of celebration by equality supporters in North Carolina and around the country. Attorney General Roy Cooper’s quick follow-up announcement that the state would no longer seek to defend the marriage discrimination law enacted in Amendment One.

The only problem, of course, is that marriage equality is still not yet the law in the Tar Heel state.

So where does that leave North Carolina?

Join NC Policy Watch next Thursday, August 7, at noon for a very special Crucial Conversation [2] where we will hear from our expert panel as it wrestles with related questions.

Our panel will include Chris Brook, Legal Director of the ACLU of North Carolina Legal Foundation; Jen Jones, Director of Communications and Outreach at Equality North Carolina; and plaintiffs in the court challenge to North Carolina’s marriage discrimination amendment.

Brook is also our guest this weekend on our weekly radio show, News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon.  Click below to hear a preview of that interview, and click here to register [2] for the August 7th Crucial Conversation in Raleigh:
