Thanks to an overwhelmingly-well attended SEC meeting in Greensboro, NC yesterday, LGBT Democrats of NC is now fully chartered as a State auxiliary, with equal footing among Young Democrats, Senior Democrats, Democratic Women of NC, Hispanic American Democrats of NC and the African American Caucus! The vote to charter was unanimous and without discussion.
Thanks to the hard work of our Executive Council and Executive Committee members, some of whom just accepted their positions at the Auxiliary meeting preceding the full SEC meeting. We have a Chair and a Vice Chair in each of the 13 Congressional districts. We are now in equal standing with many other states, and the reply I heard from most SEC members yesterday was, “well, why shouldn’t we do this? It only makes sense!”
Also passed without dissent was a resolution in opposition to the anti-marriage, anti-family amendment scheduled for the May primary ballot.
