Recently in North Carolina, the General Assembly passed an intolerant bill that allows discrimination against members of the LGBT community. Unfortunately, similar bills are being considered in several other states. This legislation alienates many Americans and moves our country backwards.
In response to North Carolina’s law, hundreds of business leaders have voiced their disapproval. Governors across the country are banning non-essential travel there, and the ACLU has filed a federal lawsuit calling into question the law’s constitutionality.
Winning Connections stands with Human Rights Campaign and other advocates of equality in their vehement opposition to bills like these. In order for our country to progress, America needs to be inclusive of all members of society. We hope that this law is struck down, and future states reconsider before passing similar legislation.
