|(Washington, DC) – Log Cabin Republicans call upon North Carolina conservatives to stand against Amendment One, which would amend the state constitution to prohibit any legal recognition of unmarried couples, gay or straight.
“Log Cabin Republicans stand with many conservative North Carolinians in opposing Amendment One, including Representative Renee Ellmers (R-NC), John Hood of the John Locke Foundation, and former Charlotte mayor and GOP gubernatorial candidate Richard Vinroot,” said R. Clarke Cooper, Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director. “These conservative and Republican leaders know that Amendment One goes far beyond marriage, banning the basic domestic partner protections that North Carolina voters support and harming real families, gay and straight. The campaign in favor of Amendment One has been deceptive and ugly, dividing families, friends and faith communities. It is time North Carolinians chose to stand and defend liberty for all by voting against this amendment.”
Log Cabin Republicans is the only Republican organization dedicated to representing the interests of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans and their allies. The more than 30-year old organization has state and local chapters nationwide, a full-time office in Washington, DC, a federal political action committee and state political action committees.
