Mayor Jennifer Roberts’ Forum on LGBT Non-Discrimination To Be Held February 1

by HRC staff January 20, 2016


Post submitted by Hope Jackson, HRC Southern Regional Field Organizer

Charlotte is currently one of the largest cities left in the country that doesn’t yet explicitly protect the LGBT community from discrimination. This could change very soon. After failing to pass a non-discrimination ordinance in March of last year, HRC joined our partners at MeckPAC and Equality North Carolina to launch the TurnOUT! Charlotte campaign, an effort that helped to elect pro-equality city council members and pave the way for these historic protections.

On Monday, February 1, newly-elected Charlotte Mayor, and LGBT advocate, Jennifer Roberts will host a forum on LGBT non-discrimination with the Charlotte Community Relations Committee and the Community Building Initiative. The purpose of the event is to convene a space for a public conversation about the ordinances introduced in March of last year and the path forward for the City as it explores how to make sure all it’s citizens are welcomed. HRC is urging advocates and supporters to attend the forum and support. We need you to tell your story and the stories of LGBT people in your lives.

This is your chance to tell Charlotte's Mayor and City Council members why LGBT non-discrimination is important to you and to urge them to make good on their promises to help build a fair and equal Charlotte. Don’t miss this chance to make your voice heard. RSVP for the Mayor’s community forum on Monday, February 1st at 6:15 PM at the The Palmer Building (2601 E 7th Street in Charlotte).

RSVP today to join HRC, Equality North Carolina, MeckPAC, and the Charlotte LGBT Chamber of Commerce at this important forum.
