Don’t take the bait. The Charlotte City Council did the right thing when it passed LGBT non-discrimination protections. The Governor and Legislature passed House Bill 2 which sparked the economic damage we’re seeing today.
Thank you for standing up for equality and inclusion earlier this year. We need you to stand up to bullies in Raleigh now more than ever. Preserve the Charlotte non-discrimination ordinance. Abandoning a commitment to inclusion and equality doesn’t repair North Carolina’s reputation. It doesn’t solve the problem - it compounds it.
