Since the WE DO Campaign launched on October 3, eighteen same-sex
couples have requested – and been denied – marriage licenses at the
Buncombe County Register of Deeds Office in Asheville, NC. The purpose
of the campaign is calling for full equality under federal law for
lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people and resisting an
unjust state law in North Carolina that prohibits marriage equality.
Momentum around the campaign grows each day and the campaign’s first
video has been viewed by over 5,500 people in the 24 hours since its
release on October 12. Clergy and volunteers are arriving from across
North Carolina and the United States to participate in a public,
interfaith blessing for LGBT families. This will be followed by a large
public action including a planned act of civil disobedience. The WE DO
Campaign will be expanding to other communities in North Carolina in
I hope people in the USA have equal rights soon. Keep pushing everyone.
