Durham, NC -- The NAACP is starting a media campaign to voice the facts and constitutional dangers about Amendment One.
According to a news release from the NAACP chapter in Durham, the campaign will place ads in African-American newspapers, statewide radio spots, mailers, brochures, and robocalls to tens of thousands of North Carolina voters.
"The polls and the politicians are asking the wrong questions on this discriminatory amendment, hatched in the backrooms of the extremist, rightwing think-tanks," said Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, President of the North Carolina State Conference of the NAACP. "Our message is consistent: A vote on the same sex marriage amendment has nothing to do with your personal and religious opinion on same sex marriage but everything to do with whether or not you believe discrimination should be codified and legalized constitutionally. We should never seek to codify or vote discrimination into the very heart and framework of our Constitution."
The radio spots are already running across the state and are available on their website.
