In a recent video address, Bank of America announced its opposition to Amendment One,  the amendment on the ballot in North Carolina that would ban marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships. You can watch the video here:

“I am heartened that, at last, a high level Bank of America executive is using her voice and influence to join those of us who know that this amendment is not only inconsistent with our shared values of compassion, equality and justice, but is also bad for business in our state,” said Rev. Leach, a strong  local advocate in North Carolina against Amendment One.

Dan Frumanksy from Standing on the Side of Love said, "Your support made this victory possible. Thank you for lending your voice to this effort for justice and dignity."


The North Carolina legislature has passed an anti-gay constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships in the state constitution. The measure will now go to a referendum before voters in May 2012.  Same-sex couples in North Carolina are already prohibited under state law from marrying or obtaining a civil union, so the proposed amendment would actually go one step further and enshrine this institutionalized discrimination into the very document designed to protect and expand minority rights.   

We are calling on the following leading companies based in North Carolina that have adopted non-discrimination policies that include sexual orientation to honor the spirit of non-discrimination by speaking up against this anti-gay bigotry and publicly opposing the institutionalization of intolerance in the state constitution.

Please join us by signing a petition to: 

  • Bank of America
  • BB & T Corp.
  • Hanesbrands Inc.
  • Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Inc.
  • Lowe’s Companies Inc.

      If voters approve the homophobic constitutional amendment, North Carolina's constitution would be messed up. Too many states have constitutions that have homophobia in it.
