THURSDAY 3/30/17 URGENT STATE ACTION

BREAKING NEWS: HB2, full repeal only! 

Call NCGA and Roy Cooper!

It appears that the NC state legislature is moving swiftly to repeal HB2 before the NCAA deadline expires Thursday. Some Democrats and Governor Cooper support a new compromise, HB 142. LGBT advocacy groups oppose this measure: “The deal proposed would continue to actively discriminate against the LGBT community,” says Chris Sgro, executive director of Equality. The bill puts a moratorium on local nondiscrimination ordinances until 2020. Human and civil rights are not partisan issues. Call reps, and Cooper to oppose this compromise bill.

SCRIPT:
I am a constituent calling from ________ County, and I urge Rep./Senator to oppose any compromise repeal of HB2 that limits civil and human rights in any way. Only a full repeal is likely to satisfy the groups and companies boycotting our state. Thank you for recording my call.
