TurnOUT! North Carolina Talks to North Carolinians about Dangerous Implications of HB2

by HRC staff May 23, 2016


Post Submitted by Alec Thomson, HRC Regional Field Organizer

Since the North Carolina legislature passed the dangerous HB2 in March, TurnOUT! North Carolina (NC) has been hard at work, talking to voters about the dangerous implications of this harmful legislation.

HB2 threatens LGBT North Carolinians and puts the state at risk of losing millions of dollars in education funding. Further, the law has had a severe economic impact on the state – resulting in the loss of thousands of jobs, cancellation of conventions, concerts and more.

TurnOUT! NC, in partnership with HRC and other local and national partners, continues to educate North Carolinians about the dangers of HB2. Last week, TurnOUT! NC held phone banks across the state to talk to voters about the legislation and what’s at risk if it is not repealed.

Volunteers made thousands of calls to North Carolinians in Raleigh, Charlotte, Ashville and other parts of the state with this message: We must stand together to demand repeal of this harmful legislation.

HRC is a member of TurnOUT! NC, a coalition that includes Equality North Carolina, the ACLU and the Campaign for Southern Equality with the simple goal of mobilizing thousands of pro-equality North Carolinians to speak out for full repeal of HB2.  If you live in North Carolina and want to join the efforts to repeal HB2, RSVP for upcoming phone banks and volunteer opportunities. For more information about our work in North Carolina, contact HRC Associate Regional Field Director Ryan Rowe at Ryan.rowe@hrc.org.
