"Vote Against Project" Stops At ECU

A group opposed to the amendment on the NC May 8th ballot defining marriage as between one man and one woman, brought their message to ECU Thursday.

The group is called "The Vote Against Project." It's an independent grassroots effort started up by photographer Curtis Brown.

Brown says they take photos of fellow supporters wearing a "Vote Against" t-shirt, then those people can use the photos to get the word out on Facebook and Twitter.

Brown says the amendment "Doesn't just affect the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender community, it also effects domestic partners and civil unions. So anyone that just doesn't want to get married or people that lose benefits with the pension by getting married will now be affected if this amendment passes through."

So far the group has photographed around 2,000 people.

On the flip side there are some organizations in our state that are for the amendment, including the North Carolina Values Coalition, religious organizations and several state lawmakers.
