Statement on “Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act”
To the community:
The North Carolina legislature’s passage last week of a new law barring local anti-discrimination measures (known as HB2: “Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act”) has been greeted with concern and alarm on many college campuses across the state, including ours.
The Warren Wilson community remains deeply committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. We support members of our LGBTQ community who may not feel safe and welcome in the state as they express their dismay over this legislation. We reject any and all appeals to homophobia and transphobia, as we also condemn appeals to racism and misogyny in this election season.
