The North Carolina chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on Tuesday said it will make a major announcement on Wednesday regarding efforts to win marriage equality in North Carolina.

“We will make a major announcement tomorrow afternoon about legal efforts to win the freedom to marry for same-sex couples in North Carolina,” the group said in a Facebook posting. “Stay tuned!”

North Carolina voters approved the nation's most recent constitutional amendment excluding gay and lesbian couples from marriage in 2012 with a 60 percent margin.

A federal judge overseeing a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of North Carolina's Amendment One appears to be waiting on the outcome of a similar case in Virgina. Next month, a 3-judge panel of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond will hear arguments in the state's appeal to a judge's decision declaring Virginia's ban invalid. The case could impact North Carolina as both states are under the jurisdiction of the Fourth Circuit.

The ACLU's news conference is scheduled for 2 PM at the International Civil Rights Center and Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina.
