To be delivered to: Democratic National Committee and President Barack Obama
On May 8, 2012, the state of North Carolina passed an amendment to its constitution that would ban any "domestic legal union" other than marriage between one man and one woman. This amendment will have devastating consequences for NC families, gay or straight, in terms of access to healthcare, higher taxes, protections against domestic violence, death benefits, pensions, hospital visitation rights, etc. We call upon the Democratic National Committee to take a stand for justice and equality by pulling the 2012 National Convention out of Charlotte, NC.
