Synopsis As Introduced
Affirms our support for protecting and advancing the constitutional rights and equitable treatment of all and our opposition to discrimination, prejudice, homophobia, and transphobia. Strongly urges the North Carolina General Assembly to repeal the "Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act" and for the Mississippi Legislature to repeal the "Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act" at the earliest opportunity. Encourages all businesses providing public accommodations in North Carolina and Mississippi to demonstrate their support for the dignity of all people by openly welcoming LGBT people to their places of business and by providing gender non-specific bathroom facilities for their customers and employees wherever practicable. Urges the Governor to prohibit all non-essential State travel to North Carolina and Mississippi until those states take the proper measures to repeal these laws.
