College students from around the country working together to defeat Amendment OnePosted on April 12, 2012 by elena in Blog
The evidence is clear — college students across party lines are soundly against North Carolina Amendment One.
It’s not surprising that there would be such widespread opposition to an amendment that would forbid civil unions and stop unmarried couples–and their children–from receiving any legal recognition from the state. Even conservative supporters of Proposition 8 in California have come out against Amendment One, saying it goes way too far!
Polling done of Duke students shows that students who plan to vote against Amendment One outnumber the total number of students who don’t plan to vote or plan to vote for the Amendment by a whopping 20 to one. At least nine student governments of universities across the state have passed resolutions against Amendment One.
Now, students across the country are teaming up to help raise awareness about Amendment One and reminding those who stand opposed to discrimination to make it out to the polls during Early Voting (April 19-May 5) and on Election Day (May 8th).
