MeckPAC, the Mecklenburg LGBT Political Action Committee, will host its annual spring fundraiser on Thursday, May 4, 2017, 6:30-8:30 p.m., at the historic Wadsworth Estate, 400 S. Summit St., in Charlotte.

MeckPAC is working hard to keep driving forward our message of LGBTQ equality. The past two years have been a tumultuous journey for LGBTQ issues in local and statewide politics. There have been twists and turns and detours all along our route toward full LGBTQ equality. For transgender community members in particular, the constant debate has cast a new light on the need for comprehensive and inclusive non-discrimination protections in public accommodations, employment, housing and more.
Two years ago, we worked to win an historic victory by electing a pro-equality majority on Charlotte City Council and passing our local non-discrimination ordinance. We need to keep the pressure tilted toward equality and we need your support in ensuring the continued election of LGBTQ and straight ally candidates. The North Carolina General Assembly might be placing speed bumps in our way, but with your support we can keep driving forward with a single, united vision for LGBTQ equality.
