Defend democracy in the South.


Two days after the massacre at an LGBT nightclub in Florida, the conservative N.C. Values Coalition held a press conference with Latino ministers at the N.C. General Assembly to defend House Bill 2, the controversial new state law restricting which public bathrooms transgender people can use and nullifying local LGBT and other anti-discrimination ordinances. The backlash against LGBT progress represented by HB2 and similar laws is fomenting an atmosphere of anti-LGBT animus. (Image is a post from the N.C. Values Coalition's Facebook page.)
