Charlotte Chamber shares letter with mayor, city council and city manager on HB2

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The Charlotte Chamber released a letter over the weekend, titled, "HB2: Charlotte City Council's Opportunity."

The letter below was shared with Mayor Jennifer Roberts, members of the Charlotte City Council and the City Manager, the Charlotte Chamber says.

As The Charlotte City Council considers action regarding non-discrimination policies, some will argue that no deal is a good one. The chamber agrees that the only acceptable outcome are policies at the city and state level that prohibit discrimination against all people. We fear that if the City Council doesn't take a first step, the crushing economic suffering, much of it hurting low wage hospitality workers, will continue for years while the courts ultimately resolve the issue.
