SVPA Awaits Gov. Perdue's Signature

Hey folks... We've been remiss in updating this site recently.

Thanks to the amazing effort by the entire coalition and supporters like you, the House on Tuesday passed the School Violence Prevention Act by a vote of 58-57. It now goes to Gov. Perdue, who has said she will sign the bill.

Your calls, emails, and in-person lobbying had a real effect. Together we have helped make NC schools safer for all children, regardless of difference.

Check out the story at the Charlotte Observer or get Equality NC's take.
