Statement: North Carolina's discriminatory bills on LGBT rights

04.14.2017
Statement from Attorney General Maura Healey:
"The North Carolina Assembly's continued introduction of bigoted and unconstitutional bills tells the business community, the NCAA, and the public everything we need to know about their governing agenda. The state's newest law on LGBT rights does not repeal the infamous HB2, as promised, it simply enshrines new discrimination, particularly against transgender individuals and students. I urge the NCAA to reinstate their boycott until North Carolina can demonstrate an actual commitment to equality and dignity for all residents, including the state's thousands of student-athletes."
