We just achieved unprecedented success on our anti-bullying bill! The House Education Committee voted down by a wide margin the egregious Hilton Amendement seeking to remove not only LGBT youth but also other always-bullied groups from protection through our anti-bullying bill. The unamended bill then passed the committee, taking us one step closer to protecting our young people.
This is a huge victory for Equality North Carolina and we couldn't have done it without our online activists--thank you! Special thanks go to our legislative allies and especially to Representative Rick Glazier for his courageous sponsorship.
If you haven't already, please support us as we work to achieve victories on all our legislative fronts. We've raised $1,863 since April 30 and we need to raise an additional $8,137 by the legislative crossover date on May 24th. Please click here right now to help us meet this goal!
We have victory #1, but we continue to reel from the shock of yesterday's news that a group of right-wing legislators are going to try to force the anti-LGBT, anti-marriage state constitutional amendment to a vote on Tuesday in the NC House. We're taking all steps necessary to make sure this doesn't happen and will continue to keep you informed on all key developments.
Please click here right now so we can keep building momentum! Don't let right-wing zealots darken our bright future! Your gift of $50, $100, or $250 right now will truly make a difference!
Well done, ENC. Thanks, my BlueNC friends for pitching in.
