Senator Van Duyn Introduces Comprehensive Non-Discrimination Legislation
Raleigh, NC: Senator Terry Van Duyn, in partnership with the Campaign for Southern Equality and Equality NC, has introduced a series of comprehensive non-discrimination legislation. At a press conference with House and Senate Democrats, Senator Van Duyn affirmed, “We believe that members of the LGBTQ community are children of God, and call out the dangerous and discredited practice of so called ‘conversion therapy.’ Whether you are buying a home, choosing a school, or accepting a job, you should never feel disrespected because of who you are or who you love. It is time for a full repeal of HB2.” Senator Van Duyn concluded, “It is time we turn the page on discrimination in North Carolina, and make it clear that we welcome everyone.”
Senator Van Duyn is in her third term as a Democratic lawmaker and previously served as Democratic Whip of the state senate, before stepping down to run for Lieutenant Governor.
