GREENSBORO -- Hundreds of students turned out at UNC Greensboro on Tuesday to protest House Bill 2.

Organizers say the law that nullified local protections for the LGBT community also stripped local governments of the ability to raise the minimum wage above the state's $7.25 an hour.

"It's not just about bathrooms, it's about people's right to live and thrive and to be able to provide for their families," said protest organizer Stephanie McCloud.

Students demonstrated on a street at the edge of the university, marched across campus under the watchful eyes of police and also protested in the administration building.

Police say there were no injuries.

The university didn't return calls about the protest.
