Over the past few weeks, numerous North Carolina groups and leaders have spoken out against the proposed constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships. On Friday, Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton (D) announced his opposition to Amendment One, a reversal of his 2005 cosponsorship of a similar amendment in the state senate. He admitted, “Perhaps I was wrong back then.” Among other groups that have come out against the measure are the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, North Carolina Advocates for Justice, and the student senate of North Carolina Central University, one of the state’s 11 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).
