MeckPAC’s work with city, county and state officials in Mecklenburg County is pivotal to moving our LGBT community forward. We do this with regular visits to our elected officials at the various government offices or work offices for lobby actions. During these “local lobby days” MeckPAC supporters will schedule appointments with all locally elected officials at the Mecklenburg County Government Center and advocate for local LGBT issues. MeckPAC also actively engages with those running for office to lobby before individuals are elected to ensure they will advocate and represent the LGBT community in Mecklenburg County through our endorsement process.
You can take action with MeckPAC on our various lobbying efforts. Be sure to sign up for our email list so you can receive regular updates and occasional action alerts. With our action alerts, you’ll be notified when important issues or actions are taking place in local, county or state government and you’ll be given the opportunity to speak out, write letters to your representatives, attend public meetings and events or other activities.
