On Friday, Jan. 20, 7-9 p.m., the Unitarian Universalist Church of Charlotte Adult Religious Education/Spiritual Development program will be screening the documentary “Ballot Measure 9.”

Ballot Measure 9 was an anti-gay amendment proposed to Oregon voters in 1992 by the conservative group Oregon Citizen’s Alliance. This documentary goes behind the scenes of the fight to stop Measure 9. It contains portions of anti-gay videos produced by the Citizen’s Alliance as well as news clips and interviews with the people who successfully fought passage of Measure 9.

Donna Red-Wing, a grassroots gay rights activist and principle in the film will attend.

The event will be held at the church, 234 North Sharon Amity Rd., Charlotte, NC 28211.
