Fighting Back Against HB2


What is HB2: Facts, myths and answers

In case you want to read the bill yourself, click here for the full text. HB2 is one of the most sweeping anti-LGBT laws in the nation, and also restricts the rights of workers. It is discriminatory and violates federal law. HB2’s provisions regarding bathroom use are anti-trans and are also unenforceable. HB2 is currently being challenged in federal court by the ACLU, Lambda and by the Department of Justice.


Until  HB2 is repealed, we will #DefyHB2. Join the Campaign for Southern Equality’s new campaign.

Crystal, Legal Director of our Rapid Response Initiative, kicks off #DefyHB2:
