RALEIGH, NC—Vote FOR Marriage NC will take part in a statewide Values Bus Tour hosted by the Heritage Foundation and the Family Research Council starting Saturday, March 3rd until Wednesday, March 8. Now on its third month of a national tour, the Values Bus Tour in North Carolina will feature guest appearances from Vote FOR Marriage NC, the referendum committee working to pass the Marriage Protection Amendment on the May 8th ballot. The bus plans to make its first stop at 8 a.m. on Saturday at the Conservative Leadership Conference at the Crabtree Valley Marriott in Raleigh.

“The Values Bus Tour gives Vote FOR Marriage NC the perfect platform for talking with thousands North Carolina voters about the importance of preserving marriage as the union of one man and one woman in our state constitution,” said Tami Fitzgerald, chairwoman of Vote FOR Marriage NC. “In addition to handing out materials, we’ll be working with the Heritage Foundation and the Family Research Council in conducting voter registration drives across the state.”
