Legal Minds and Activists Come Together To Discuss HB2

CHARLOTTE, NC– Legal minds got together with lawmakers and activists tonight in Uptown Charlotte to talk about House Bill 2.

The panel discussion at Charlotte School of Law was planned before today’s appeals court ruling.

State Senator Jeff Jackson says North Carolina stands to lose billions if House Bill 2 isn’t repealed.

“It could subject us to 4.5 billion dollars in withheld Federal Funding.  Just some perspective, that’s all the money we spend on our university system, our community college system. All the money we get from the lottery, all the money we get for teacher’s assistants, all put together and then some. ” said Senator Jackson
