Raleigh events tonight, Saturday in anti-Amendment 1 campaign

Posted by on Thu, Feb 16, 2012 at 2:38 PM

Late notice this week, but phone banking to defeat Amendment One, the so-called DOMA*, is taking place every Thursday night at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Raleigh hall, 3313 Wade Avenue. It starts at 6:30 — bring your cell phone and a laptop computer if you have one.

Here's a Facebook link.

Starting March 26, phone banks will be held at the UUFR on Mondays and Thursdays. And on April 24, as the May 8 primary election date comes close, Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. So don't say you didn't have time(s).


And this Saturday night, February 18, there's a benefit concert at the same UUFR location, organized by our friend Beth Padgett. It starts at 8, but suggest you get there early. The recommended donation is $7, but c'mon ...

Here's a bit about it from the UUFR website:

Join us from 8 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, February 18 in UUFR’s Sanctuary for what is guaranteed to be two hours of good music with friends in the cause for equality and dignity. Donations go to the Coalition to Protect NC Families, a group of organizations working to protect NC’s unmarried couples and their families from the many harms of Amendment One.

UUFR's own Interim Minister Don Rollins will open and act as the MC for other musicians, who include Someone’s Sister, the Triangle Gay Men’s Chorus, Rhythmicity, and more, as well as speakers Rev. Jimmy Creech and organizers from Race to the Ballot, the Coalition to Protect NC Families and UUFR’s Task Force to Protect All NC Families.


* Defense (??) of Marriage Amendment — that's what the proponents call it. How banning marriages between gay couples, banning civil unions, and banning legal powers-of-attorney between loving couples, protects marriage, I dunno.
