USA: Company CEOs submit open letter to North Carolina legislature demanding repeal of discriminatory LGBT bill

Author: Diversity Inc. (USA), Published on: 31 March 2016

"TD Bank, Hilton, Accenture, Kellogg's and Others Demand North Carolina Repeal Radical New Anti-LGBT Law"

...[E]xecutives from [a number of American companies] have signed onto an open letter that now includes more than 100 leading CEOs and business leaders calling on Governor Pat McCrory and the North Carolina General Assembly to repeal the radical provisions in the deeply discriminatory House Bill 2 that was rammed through the legislature last week...he letter — signed by dozens of CEOs from across the nation — was made public Tuesday afternoon, and came only a day after Georgia Governor Nathan Deal announced he would veto anti-LGBT legislation in Georgia after facing a sustained outcry from a broad chorus of advocates and companies...North Carolina has the unfortunate distinction of becoming the first state in the country to enact a law attacking transgender students, even after similar proposals were rejected across the country this year — including a high-profile veto by the Republican Governor Dennis Daugaard of South Dakota.
