More than 100,000 people attended Charlotte Pride during the weekend of August 16 and 17 according to Q Notes.
The Campaign for Southern Equality along with the LGBTQ Law Center were proud to offer a chance to complete a Health Care Power of Attorney document at Charlotte Pride! More than 30 attorneys and notaries volunteered their time on Saturday to help us provide legal rights to LGBTQ people.
And we’re happy to report that 144 individuals completed a Health Care Power of Attorney document on Saturday at Charlotte Pride!
Marie and Terry, together for 30 years, were two of the people who completed a document. They now know that their medical choices will be respected during an emergency medical situation.
The goal of a Community Law Workshop is to empower LGBT people in the South to protect our rights to the full extent possible under current laws. With the support of volunteer attorneys we were able to provide LGBT Southerners with thousands of dollars worth of legal work at no cost.
