The Charlotte Chamber supports expanding protections in Charlotte and North Carolina for the LGBT community. The Charlotte Chamber rejects discrimination in any form.

We have strongly recommended to House Speaker Tim Moore and President Pro Tem Phil Berger that the legislature permit cities in North Carolina, like Charlotte, the right to pass ordinances that would extend protections to individuals within the LGBT community.

We also continue to call on the City of Charlotte to participate in a process that we hope leads to reforms to HB2 that advance our city and state as places where discrimination is not tolerated for anyone.


 Call to Action! Tell local and state elected officials what you think.

We need to hear from you. Take this important survey.
