GET INVOLVED TO OVERTURN HOUSE BILL 2

The Jewish community has spoken loudly and clearly that it is opposed to House Bill 2, a controversial law that bans transgender persons from using bathrooms in accordance with their gender identities, and severely limits the ability of municipalities to pass progressive local legislation on everything from anti-discrimination issues to minimum wage requirements. 

The Charlotte chapter of CJJ sent this letter in January of 2017 to the NC General Assembly in response to the legislature’s failure to repeal HB2.

In April 2016, rabbis from across the state held a special Passover service on the steps of our state legislature, calling for the repeal of this discriminatory law.

See some of the press coverage herehere and here. And our Jewish community gets special praise in the Kveller!
