In celebration of Transgender Day of Visibility, Equality North Carolina is hosting a Town Hall with four of our past and current Rural Youth Empowerment (RYE) Fellows. Please join us for a conversation about the experiences of young, trans folks navigating COVID-19 and ways the public can support the transgender community at this time.
It’s hard to overemphasize the importance of the elections this year taking place across our state. From the entire North Carolina General Assembly to the Governor’s Mansion to your local Board of Education, the number of races on this year’s ballot is nothing short of massive. Not to mention our congressional and presidential contests.
The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation and the Equality Federation Institute have released their 5th annual State Equality Index (SEI), a comprehensive report detailing statewide laws and policies that affect LGBTQ people and their families, and assessing how well states are protecting LGBTQ people from discrimination.
