Charlotte clergy opposed to North Carolina’s House Bill 2 will lead an interfaith gathering Sunday that will call again for repeal of the controversial law.
A collection will be held to provide financial support for the legal battle to throw out the law, which overrode a Charlotte city ordinance that would have extended anti-discrimination protections to LGBT persons. The ordinance also would have allowed transgender persons to use the bathroom of their gender identity.
“Shining Our Light: A Multifaith Gathering to Repeal HB2” will begin at 4 p.m. at Myers Park Baptist Church, 1900 Queens Road.
Sponsors for the event: The Charlotte Clergy Coalition for Justice the Freedom Center for Social Justice, and the ACLU.
