Repeal HB2 Special Session

NC General Assembly
16 W. Jones St. Raleigh, NC
Governor-elect Roy Cooper announced that the NC General Assembly will hold a 5th special session this week to repeal “Hate Bill 2,” the anti-worker, anti-LGBTQ, anti-family legislation passed earlier this year. We are ready to join our legislators in Raleigh. Their special session track record does not instill confidence that they will keep their word, so we will monitor the session to ensure that the bill is repealed in full and no other legislation is discussed. This is a victory of the people but this is no reason to praise our legislators. “Hate Bill 2” should have never been passed and it has done massive damage to our state. All praise goes to the people of North Carolina who never gave up the fight and who declared that discrimination has no place in our legislation.
