In 2012, the Campaign for Southern Equality will expand our WE DO Campaign to communities across the South. Same-sex couples request and are denied marriage licenses in order to publicly express our full humanity, resist unjust laws and call for full equality under federal law by the end of the decade.
We'll be doing this against the charged political backdrop of an election year, discriminatory laws on the books in all Southern states — and an anti-LGBT amendment on the May 2012 ballot here in North Carolina.
The big idea behind it: LGBT folks and allies in the South taking coordinated, ongoing action calling for full equality under federal law. The Asheville piece: This effort will be headquartered in Asheville, an ideal regional hub for LGBT organizing in the South.
