"The North Carolina legislature did the right thing in trusting the people of North Carolina with the future of marriage in 2012," said Brian Brown, president of NOM. “The National Organization for Marriage pledges to help!"

Washington – Brian Brown, president of NOM, reacts to the news that the North Carolina legislature voted by a three-fifths majority to refer a marriage amendment to the people of North Carolina in 2012.

"This is a big win for marriage and for democracy!" says Brian Brown. "The big lie in politics is that the marriage fight is over. This vote proves once again the pundits are wrong: the people want the right to decide the future of marriage. NOM reached out to more than 100,000 North Carolinians in the last few days, making sure they told their representatives they want the right to vote for marriage. Congratulations to each and every North Carolinian voter for this big win, and thanks in particular to the Family Research Council, North Carolina Family Policy Council and the North Carolina Values Coalition for all their hard work in making this vote happen.”
