HB2 Next Steps Discussion

Since mother nature froze out our first attempt at this, let's try a new date.

HB2 and the Charlotte NDO has been an ongoing topic this year. What has been missed in the discussions is how much this directly impacts the transgender community. This meeting will be our chance to tell some of our stories to humanize the issue as well as discuss what the next steps are in repealing HB2 AND reinstating the ordinance.

The format of the meeting will be as follows:
1) Welcome

2) Introduce any local LGBT org, and political representatives present

3) Open the floor to local transgender people to tell how the NDO, it's repeal, and HB2 has impacted their lives

4) Open dialogue between LGBT orgs and political reps on what our next steps are

5) Plans to continue this discussion in the future

We are still working on a moderator for the meeting and will announce when one has been selected.
The meeting will be in the Harris Hall at the Levine Museum for the New South. Note that the Levine will validate parking at the 7th street station deck next door so bring in your parking tickets.
