Statement on Passage of SB2 by North Carolina State Senate
Asheville, N.C. (February 25, 2015) – “This discriminatory bill treats gay and lesbian couples as second-class citizens and distorts the true meaning of religious freedom. Once again our legislature has demonstrated a willful disregard for the basic concept of treating all North Carolinians fairly. Like Amendment One, I believe this bill will not stand the test of time because it is rooted in animus,” says Rev. Jasmine Beach-Ferrara, executive director of the Campaign for Southern Equality.
