NORTH CAROLINA – Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders campaign released a statement condemning our North Carolina’s new nondiscrimination law.

"North Carolina's H.B. 2, m=Mississippi's H.B. 1523 and Missouri’s S.J.R. 39 are extreme and discriminatory. Every American deserves equal treatment under the law and every transgender person should be able to use the bathroom that matches their identity. The sole intent of these bills, and those like them, is to allow people to discriminate against LGBTQ people."

The administration promised as president, Senator Sanders would work to ensure protections under civil rights laws are extended to all LGBTQ people.
