A North Carolina string quartet with James Travis Creed and Billie Karel raises its voice against Amendment One


"Just outside the frame of the video, I am rocking my 3-month-old daughter with my foot while we play. I am taking a stand against Amendment One because I want Nora to learn that the best weapons with which to fight intolerance and fear are beauty and generosity of spirit." --Karen Strittmatter Galvin

"Working in the Arts has opened my eyes and torn down walls. The people I love come in all shapes, sizes, colors, ethnicities, and sexual orientations. I am happy to do my part to ensure ALL North Carolinians can live their life as they please and be happy. I am thankful to have such talented friends and honored to play a small role in making my state a better place to live." --James Travis Creed
