DURHAM, N.C. — The Coalition to Protect NC Families’ Campaign Manager Jeremy Kennedy is asking supporters to contribute monies toward its efforts to defeat the anti-gay marriage amendment which will appear on the ballot on May 8, 2012.

In fact, he has gone so far as to request that his loved ones forgo personal gifts or reduce their cost so that contributions can be given to the campaign. He’s suggesting others to consider this as well.

The coalition has received a offer from a donor who will match every gift received between now and the end of 2011 up to $25,000. At press time, they had raided close to $17,500.

Funds will be used to hire staff to battle opposition forces between now and late spring.

To make a contribution or for more information, visit protectncfamilies.org.

In other news, the organization is also seeking photographs of couples and families for its website. They are going to use three different kinds of photographs of three different kinds of families. Kennedy said, “I am looking for images that reflect the values of our group, … diversity — not just in color, but in gender, and in orientation.”

Email jeremy@protectncfamilies.org to learn more or to submit images.
