It has recently been stated that many businesses in the state of North Carolina are grouping together to strike down in the infamous law known as the “bathroom law”. This is a law that directly hurts transgender people who are living in North Carolina and many people view it as discrimination.
- Opposition to North Carolina’s “bathroom law” has grown, with 10 states filing a brief supporting the U.S. Department of Justice’s motion to block the statute.
- The Human Rights Campaign defends the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people.
- The states noted that nearly 1.5 million Americans identify as transgender, and that the law has made travel to North Carolina more difficult for their states’ transgender individuals.
“Another argument in favor of blocking H.B. 2 is its similarity to the facts in Romer v. Evans, the companies’ brief stated.”
