Triangle: Equality NC seeks feedback

Carolinas News Notes

RALEIGH, N.C. — Equality North Carolina (ENC), in order to meet its 2013 New Year’s resolution to serve its supporters, communities and state like never before, is asking for participants in a quick survey.

Specifically, they are committed to becoming the state’s primary source for news, education and civic engagement on LGBT issues. They have pledged to be more accountable to the needs of LGBT North Carolinians and its allies in every part of the state. And, in the process, its goal is to take the lessons and successes from 2012 — arguably the most significant year for the LGBT movement in North Carolina and the nation — and translate them into new victories for LGBT Equality in the South, Executive Director Stuart Campbell shared.

ENC has promised to take the results and turn them into positive changes in how the statewide LGBT advocacy organization works for its constituents in 2013.
