Greenville Joins List Of Municipalities Opposing Discriminatory Amendment One

Last night, the Greenville City Council passed a resolution opposing North Carolina’s Amendment One with a 5–1 vote. Greenville is the first municipality from Eastern North Carolina to rebuff the measure, which bans same-sex marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships, but it joins numerous other cities, universities, faith communities, and organizations speaking out against codifying discrimination. Voters head to the polls in just four weeks.
