About This Action
We are working to repeal House Bill 2 (HB2), which prevents local governments from passing non-discrimination laws that include sexual orientation and gender identity, local minimum wages, and limits the ability for North Carolinians to take action in state court when they have been discriminated against based on their race, religion, color, national origin, biological sex or handicap.
Why does it matter?
HB2 strips away all legal protections that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ) people had in cities and counties across North Carolina. Forcing transgender people to use bathrooms and locker rooms based on the gender on their birth certificate not only violates Federal law, but experience shows it can be dangerous for transgender people. HB2 encourages discrimination against all protected groups because it takes away any option to sue in state court. Finally, by not allowing cities to set a minimum wage that reflects their community's actual cost of living, it hurts the working poor and middle classes who may no longer be able to afford to live in their communities.
