Equality NC Action Fund Announces Pro-Equality Phone Banks in Durham

In 2011, anti-equality legislators targeted the LGBT community by putting Amendment One on the ballot. Now it’s time to return the favor.

Equality NC Action Fund today announced all-new opportunities to help pro-equality candidates defeat anti-LGBT politicians, including phone banks from downtown Durham every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evening, from now until Election Day, November 6, 2012.

All across NC, there are extremely close legislative races where a few hundred phone calls could make the difference between a pro-equality candidate and anti-equality candidate.our supporters in Durham and Orange counties – counties that voted overwhelmingly against Amendment One – to pick up the phone and work to defeat the same legislators who put the rights of a minority group up for majority vote.

Equality NC Action Fund is encouraging fair-minded North Carolinians to volunteer just one evening between now and November, to make a difference in the outcome of this all-important election year.
