I was catching up on my Carrboro Citizen today, and was surprised to see that it listed the first panelist as ROBERT Campbell, head of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro NAACP. I was frankly surprised and impressed to see that he would be taking part in this event. But the listing here from OCHRC says STUART Campbell.I'm probably not going to make it there, so I'd love if someone who attends lets me know which Campbell was on the panel. 

It was NAACP Campbell. Just before the anti-amendment event, he spoke at the Occupy event at Peace and Justice Plaza.And instead of Stuart Campbell at the anti-amendment event, it was Alex Miller from the Coalition to Protect NC Families (the coalition against the amendment, which you wouldn't guess from the name).

As I understand the amnd. it defines marrage as a man and woman which I have no problem with...but also seeks to  prevent civil unions(according to WRDU radio news last week) and that I oppose if true. In a cursory review of web I do not see what I thought I heard nor the actual wording of the amend. it does: A BILL TO BE ENTITLED2 AN ACT TO AMEND THE  CONSTITUTION TO PROVIDE THAT MARRIAGE 3 BETWEEN ONE MAN AND  ONE WOMAN IS THE ONLY DOMESTIC LEGAL 4 UNION THAT SHALL BE VALID OR RECOGNIZED IN THIS STATEThus I do not support. Corrosion of definitons will leave us all unable to funCtion.(dependence on spelling checker as well!)cw  Weakness is provocative.
