Taking on Amendment One Through Faith: A discussion about the religious freedom legal challenge to Amendment One.

On April 28th, a federal legal challenge to Amendment One was filed on behalf of clergy from across faith traditions, same-sex couples and the United Church of Christ. The case challenges the constitutionality of marriage laws in North Carolina – including Amendment One – that ban marriage between same-sex couples and make it illegal for clergy to perform wedding ceremonies for same-sex couples within their congregation.
Please join the Campaign for Southern Equality and Equality NC for an in-depth discussion about the case! Speakers will include:
* Reverend Nancy Petty, Plaintiff in United Church of Christ vs. Cooper and Pastor of Pullen Memorial Baptist Church.
* Reverend Jasmine Beach-Ferrara, Executive Director of the Campaign for Southern Equality.

Pullen Memorial Baptist Church 1801 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh, North Carolina 27605 at 6:00pm - 7:00pm
