North Carolina Amendment One is up for a vote on May 8. If passed, the constitutional amendment will harm women, children and families. It will also harm our ability to recruit businesses. Polling shows that North Carolina opposes Amendment One when they understand what it actually does and we must educate all of North Carolina on the harms of Amendment One.
1. Amendment One would eliminate the possibility of legal recognition of gay and lesbian couples. This would, in turn, threaten end of life decisions, hospital visitations, adoptions, child custody and more.
2. This amendment, if passed, would eliminate health coverage and benefits currently offered by city and county governments across North Carolina. This would strip coverage from children and unmarried couples - gay and straight.
3. Current polling indicates that North Carolinians oppose virtually everything that would happen if Amendment One passes, they just do not understand the impacts yet. That is why we must have conversations with our fellow North Carolinians about the harms of Amendment One.
