LATEST: Charlotte leaders urged not to rescind non-discrimination ordinance

Washington, DC, May 23, 2016—”We want to express our deep gratitude to Mayor Roberts of Charlotte and the Charlotte City Council for passing their groundbreaking ordinance in February. You were on the right side of history then — as you are now. We know the opponents of equality want to re-write the history you made by trying to coerce you into rescinding this ordinance. They are trying to blame you for the disastrous impact of their HB2 law on North Carolina. As you can see from the public reaction across North Carolina and the nation, you are clearly right — and they are clearly wrong,” Rev Rodney McKenzie, Director of Academy for Leadership and Action, National LGBTQ Task Force.
