Love it! This is going to be on Monday. Just received this e-blast from Equality NC.
Our friends at PFLAG Triangle and NC Against H8 tipped us off to an upcoming Durham City Council vote in support of civil marriage for same-sex couples. Usually alerts about these votes aren't so positive, because they're in support of the Marriage Discrimination Amendment–and we've sent out quite a few of those in the past few months. Please let your council members know that you support this resolution, and be there to tell them in person on Monday night! And, of course, spread the word.
What? The Durham City Council is voting to adopt the Resolution in Support of Civil Marriage for Same-Sex Couples
When? Monday, August 17, 2009 at 7:00pm
Where? 101 City Hall Plaza, Durham, NC 27701
