Here’s a great little op-ed published by the New Yorker’s News Desk. The author, Anne Springfield, gives a nice overview of the gargantuan efforts put forth by the Coalition to Protect NC Family’s (CPNCF) towards defeating Amendment One. As she puts it:
Amendment 1 has drawn scant attention outside of North Carolina so far, but it is poised to be a bellwether fight in the gay civil-rights movement. A defeat for the amendment is looking more and more possible as the Coalition’s momentum grows and the conversation expands.
Only a few more days left to help defeat Amendment One! Please consider helping CPNCF with their Get Out the Vote initiative. They need people to participate in phone banks across the state and to canvas neighborhoods. You can sign up to participate here. If you’re unable to help, at least make sure to get to the polls on May 8th! Tell your friends!
