Rally in Raleigh Against SB106!
Thursday, June 2, 12:00 – 2:00 PM
Grounds of the North Carolina General Assembly
16 W. Jones Street
Unite to fight SB106 (the North Carolina anti-gay super-DOMA)! The proposed legislation would not only put an anti-gay marriage amendment on the 2012 ballot, it would also prevent private businesses and municipalities in NC from offering domestic partnership insurance benefits and make null and void Domestic Partnership Registries in the three cities in NC that offer them (Chapel Hill, Asheville and Carrboro); basically, it would end all relationship recognition outside of heterosexual marriage.
You’ve heard the saying “If you are not outraged you’re not paying attention”. Outrage is easy, action is hard. Are you willing to take action? You’ve sent in postcards, signed petitions, sent emails to your representatives, now it is time to join together, united, and make a stand. Will you stand with us to let our North Carolina lawmakers know that we refuse to be even further alienated from and discriminated by our government? We are all equal, and it is time our government started treating us as such.
Our message to NC legislators: we are your neighbors, your doctors, your lawyers, your teachers, your child care providers, your mothers, your fathers, your sons, your daughters, your brothers, your sisters. We are your constituents. We are your fellow human beings. We deserve more and will no longer settle for less.
