Nat’l faith leader @JayBakker headlines #Durham event against #NC #Amendment1 this Sunday #ncpol
DURHAM, N.C. — Jay Bakker, son of well-known evangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, will lead a rally this Sunday, April 22, encouraging voter participation against Amendment One. The “FAITH IN ACTION: GET OUT THE VOTE” event begins at 1 p.m. at the Trotter Building (410 W. Geer St.), and will focus on the harms of a constitutional amendment on the May 8, 2012, North Carolina primary ballot that would threaten protections for the state’s unmarried couples.
Rally speakers include Quaker peace activist David LaMotte, Pilgrim United Church of Christ pastor Rev. Ginger Brasher-Cunningham, evangelical author Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, charismatic Christian leader Jimmy Chalmers and Baptist minister Brian Ammons.
Directly following the rally, attendees will march to the polls to take advantage of Sunday voting during the early voting period. The afternoon concludes with a party at Durham’s Fullsteam Brewery (422 Rigsbee Ave.), beginning around 3 p.m.
