Thousands of Constituents Demand Repeal of HB2

Post Submitted By: Ryan Wilson, HRC Senior Regional Field Organizer

Since launching just three months ago, TurnOUT! North Carolina (NC) has worked across North Carolina identifying voters committed to the same cause: full repeal of the discriminatory HB2. Volunteers have canvassed neighborhoods, farmers markets, concerts, street festivals, sporting events and even popular restaurants. In key districts, our coalition collected over 3,000 postcards from constituents asking their specific lawmaker to vote to repeal HB2. Over the past two weeks, constituents have come to the General Assembly in Raleigh to hand deliver these postcards representing the voices of residents of their district.

With the constituents in these key districts, a total of over 12,000 North Carolinians have personally demanded that Governor Pat McCrory and legislative leaders vote to repeal HB2 before they end the legislative short session.

On Wednesday, HRC National Field Director Marty Rouse, Equality North Carolina’s Matt Hirschy and several supportive legislators made one final call to fully repeal HB2 before the end of session and to not waste any additional time with the proposed “fixes” being discussed.

TurnOUT! NC will continue to mobilize pro-equality North Carolinians to speak out for full repeal of HB2. TurnOUT! NC has field organizers based in Asheville, Charlotte and the Triangle area.

For more information about our work in North Carolina, contact HRC Associate Regional Field Director Ryan Rowe at Ryan.rowe@hrc.org.
