Video Campaign Shows Mundane Moments Threatened by Discriminatory Laws
RALEIGH – A new online video campaign portrays real North Carolinians in everyday situations – “mundane moments” – that could be threatened by state laws that enable discrimination.
The “Mundane Moment” campaign launched this week with videos portraying lesbian parents, a Muslim couple, and a transgender woman – all real North Carolinians – in various family situations. The videos aim to highlight a North Carolina law that allows government officials to deny marriage services to couples if they cite a religious objection, as well as the absence of any North Carolina laws protecting transgender people from various forms of discrimination.
The three videos and more information about these issues are available at MundaneMoment.org.
Visitors to the site are encouraged to share their own “Mundane Moments” online using the hashtag #MundaneMoment.
MundaneMoment.org is a joint project of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of North Carolina and Equality NC.
