SAY 'NO' to DISCRIMINATION!

On May 8th, the people of North Carolina voted in support of Amendment One, a constitutional amendment that discriminates against LGBT people, couples & their families. In protest, the Democratic National Convention Committee should MOVE its convention (September 2012) to a state that upholds values of equality & liberty, and which treats ALL citizens equally.

      Change.org has stated there was a 'technical error' with the collection of signatures for this petition and today they changed the number of signatures from 93,000 to 32,000. I am still waiting for a satisfactory explanation as to how/why this happened and if this has ever happened with any other petitions on this site.

      Because I do not wish to see bigotry go unchallenged. The ppl of NC should know their anti-gay beliefs are no different than their racist beliefs of the past. Find a state worthy of the money a convention brings.
