Today, Mecklenburg LGBT Political Action Committee (MeckPAC) announced a call to action for Mecklenburg County residents.
City Council will be voting on the 2012 budget on Monday, June 11 and MeckPAC is encouraging community members to write their City Council member and the At-Large members to tell them that they need to vote to include Domestic Partner Benefits in the 2013 budget.
At a recent citizens forum in Charlotte, MeckPAC joined several LGBT city employees as they spoke out on their own behalf to urge City Council members to vote to keep domestic partner benefits in the 2013 budget.¬† They talked about their partners and families and how having access to these benefits would directly impact and improve their lives. City Manager Curt Walton wrote to them to thank them for attending and for speaking out.¬† Now MeckPAC wants to ensure City Council members also get the message.
You can find your City Council representative and their contact information below. This information was compiled by MeckPAC.
