Achieving LGBT Equality Through Litigation, Legislation, Policy, and Public Education

#WeAreAllNC

WeAreAllNC

In North Carolina and other states, extreme anti-LGBT legislatures are mounting unprecedented attacks on LGBT people.  We will not sit idly by while our communities are under attack. We need your help!

Elected leaders in San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Boston, West Palm Beach, and the states of New York, Washington, and Vermont have issued executive  orders banning taxpayer-funded travel to North Carolina in the wake of passage of the vile anti-LGBT law. Let’s keep that momentum going!!

We urge each of you to participate in our #WeAreAllNC campaign now. #WeAreAllNC recognizes that no matter where you live, you can press your local officials or Governor to stand on the just side of history by emailing them directly and sending sample language to adopt similar bans.

Below, you will find:

  • EMAILA letter and ban language to your elected leader asking to join the effort.
  • SHAREPre-populated social networking posts and tweets.

Email: Letter & Ban Language for Your Elected Leader

Dear <Add Name of Elected Leader>
 
You may have read about the recent law—House Bill 2—in North Carolina that is deeply harmful and stigmatizing to the LGBT community and to others targeted for discrimination. I am hoping you will take a courageous and honorable stand against this injustice.
 
I am a citizen of <fill in city or town name and state>. I am writing to encourage you to follow the lead of a number of other elected officials in denouncing this law by enacting a travel ban for city employees traveling to North Carolina using taxpayer dollars. Several cities and even the entire state of New York have enacted similar ban.
 
I am including a link—www.NCLRights.org/NCSamples—for you to download sample language for such a ban. Thank you for your leadership and consideration. I deeply hope my <fill in either city, county, or state> will be on the right side of history.
 

Sincerely,

<Your name and contact information>
