Neighbors on Call's Weekly Policy Update for 1/25/21

LGBTQ Rights

  • Following the expiration of a statewide ban on local non-discrimination ordinances last month, multiple North Carolina towns, cities, and counties have passed non-discrimination ordinances that protect LGBTQ people. The Orange County Board of Commissioners passed a non-discrimination policy covering the entire county, and the municipalities of Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and Hillsborough passed their own local ordinances last week. On Tuesday, both Greensboro and Durham passed non-discrimination ordinances that, in addition to LGBTQ identity, also protect people with natural hair styles associated with a race or culture. While it is not clear how Republican legislators will react to the new ordinances, NC Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) has suggested that those with complaints may be best served in the courts.
