Love Wins in North Carolina (on a budget)

Cross-posted from RichirOutreach.com

A small coalition of North Carolina families came together last weekend to fight against Amendment One, the proposed measure that would define marriage as between one man and one woman in the state’s constitution. With the help of NationBuilder and plain-old kitchen table conversations, about 20 families organized to hold a very successful fundraising event.

They decided to hold a dance party because "Too much of the anti-gay amendment debate has focused on fighting hate instead of celebrating the love bringing these couples and families together. A Valentine’s Day Dance offers the perfect opportunity to celebrate love and commit to working for justice."
