Gov. McCrory is about to call a special session repealing North Carolina's Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act. Please stop what you're doing right now and call and ask him not to: (919) 814-2000.
In March, the General Assembly responded to Charlotte City Council's over-reaching ordinance. Charlotte had forced open every public shower, locker room, and bathroom within city limits to men who "identify" as female. The General Assembly halted that ordinance, and any other like it, by specifying that all sex-specific public accommodations in the state must be used in accordance with the sex listed on a person's birth certificate.
Women and girls, including abuse survivors, spoke out publicly--some for the first time--about their need for safety and privacy in showers, locker rooms, and bathrooms. Thousands of people rallied at the state house. And hundreds of thousands of Americans cheered these common-sense protections.
But on Monday, Dec. 19, the Charlotte City Council repealed its ordinance, at least for now, and issued an ultimatum: Repeal HB 2 by Dec. 31, or the city would continue to wage its P.R. campaign against the rest of the state.
According to published news reports, Gov. McCrory appears to be yielding to the Left's demands, saying he will call a special session.
- Please stop what you're doing and call Gov. McCrory, right now, at (919) 814-2000. Ask him NOT to call a special session repealing HB 2. Ask him to stand up to out of state bullies, and to protect women and children using public facilities to shower, dress, and use the bathroom.
