NC continues to lose money due to the controversial House Bill 2. The National Council of La Raza moved their 2016 event out of Raleigh to protest House Bill 2. The group issued a statement in support of civil rights and LGBT groups in the state.
Losing this conference in Raleigh increases the negative economic impact of HB2 even further. Scheduled for the Raleigh Convention Center, the loss of this conference is an unfortunate side effect of the discriminatory bill.
"By taking this action, we extend our support to the efforts of so many in North Carolina and the LGBT, civil rights and business communities to repeal this egregious law."
- Janet Murguía, NCLR President and CEO
