Dear Marriage Supporter,
Many, many thanks to each of you who have sent messages, made phone calls, and even joined me in Raleigh yesterday at the State Capitol. With your help, the marriage amendment passed the House on a 75-42 vote yesterday, satisfying the 3/5 majority required for passage.
But the battle isn't over yet. We urgently need your help today as the Senate takes up the amendment.
Groups like FRC Action, the North Carolina Family Policy Council, and the North Carolina Values Coalition have played critical roles in getting the amendment to this point. NOM is using automated phone calls to reach out to marriage supporters in targeted districts across the state today to help push across the finish line. But ultimately, it comes down to you, and what your senator is hearing from his constituents.
Please take a moment right now to call or email your state senator, urging him or her to vote YES on the marriage amendment.
With the Senate vote pending later today, there isn't much time. Please send your emails and make your phone calls right now!
Brian S. Brown
