Last month, the NC legislature voted to put an Amendment on the May Primary ballot that would ban all state recognition of unmarried couples, with potentially devastating consequences for LGBT couples, unmarried domestic violence victims, and children of unmarried parents. Panelists include seven-term Senator Ellie Kinnaird, former Mayor of Carrboro; NC Central School of Law Professor Lydia Lavelle, former President of NCAWA and member of the Board of Alderman in Carrboro, where she and her partner are registered domestic partners; and Sharon Thompson, a former legislator and family attorney in Durham who frequently represents LGBT clients. Join OUTLaw, Human Rights Law Society, Duke Law ACLU, and Duke Law Democrats for this burrito lunch. For more information, contact Haley Warden at email@example.com.
