Campaign for Southern Equality says ‘We Do’

Campaign for Southern Equality

Campaign for Southern Equality made national news yesterday when activists from the organization attempted to secure marriage licenses in Greenville, S.C., as part of the organization's We Do Campaign.

Three couples from the group, Michel McVicker and Alyssa Weaver, Pastor Ra’Shawn Barlow-Flournoy and Pastor Kelvin Barlow-Flournoy, and April Whittington and Tanika Jones, requested marriage licenses yesterday at the County Probate Court in Greenville, S.C.

All three couples were denied because they did not meet the legal requirements for marriage in the state. South Carolina has a constitutional amendment banning same-sex unions.
