Council Special Meeting - House Bill 2
The Chapel Hill Town Council passed resolutions affirming the dignity of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and calling for the repeal of Session Law 2016-3/House Bill 2 in a special meeting held Monday, March 28.
The Council also passed a resolution of strong condemnation of the actions of NC General Assembly Legislators and the NC Governor for enacting an "intolerable act of hate." Read the Council resolutions in detail http://bit.ly/25t5ftD .
The Council encouraged all businesses providing public accommodations in Chapel Hill and North Carolina to demonstrate their support for the dignity of all people by openly welcoming LGBT people to their places of business and by providing gender nonspecific bathroom facilities for their customers and employees wherever practicable. Rainbow flags will be flying in downtown Chapel Hill this week to show support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people.
