Mecklenburg Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Political Action Committee (MeckPAC) is a non-partisan, non-profit organization registered with the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections. Our mission is to mobilize the LGBT community and its many allies in Charlotte/Mecklenburg to vote and participate in city/county elections, to educate city/county elected officials about issues of importance to the LGBT community, and to hold city/county elected officials accountable for their votes on such issues.
MeckPAC is allied with the important political advocacy work for LGBT equality provided by EqualityNC (ENC) at the state level and by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) at the federal level. Support for all three levels of LGBT political advocacy (local, state, and federal) is crucial to achieving full equality.
