YDNC Statement on HB2 Repeal by khaetlyn grindell

The Young Democrats of North Carolina (YDNC) maintains that the actions of the Republican controlled General Assembly are the only reason why HB2 exists in the first place and remain disappointed that Republican lawmakers are forcing Governor Cooper into a compromised repeal of HB2.

“Young people want a state government that respects local control of cities and doesn’t compromise on civil rights,” said Ebony West, YDNC President. “It’s clear that the only way we will see a clean repeal of HB2 is if we elect progressives to the general assembly and overcome the gerrymandering which has created extreme and unfair representation in Raleigh.”

YDNC stands in solidarity with the LGBTQIA community and reaffirms its commitment to working alongside and supporting those most marginalized by unjust laws.
