We’re all in this together

At a stop at a homeless shelter in Hickory on the NAACP’s Truth & Hope tour of Poverty in NC, furniture maker Mitchell Gold, whose company is one of the largest employers in a town hard hit by the recession and the decline of industry, talked about his concern for homeless teens.
Too many are on the streets, he said, because of hostility toward gay youth. He thanked
NC NAACP president Rev. William Barber for the organization’s strong opposition to Amendment 1.
Barber’s response pretty well sums up why the NAACP has come out so strongly against the amendment.
