NC Values Statement on NCAA’s Return to North Carolina for Future Collegiate Championship Events 

April 4, 2017 for immediate release

 

"NCAA’s boycott of North Carolina achieved what it wanted—the repeal of HB2—proving that bullying works as long as you meet the demands of the bully."

 

“NC Values Coalition is pleased that the NCAA Board of Governors has decided to end their boycott and lobbying efforts against our State and are now including North Carolina bids to host future NCAA Championship events through 2022. The NCAA’s boycott of North Carolina achieved what it wanted—the repeal of HB2—proving that bullying works as long as you meet the demands of the bully; however, the NCAA had no business demanding anything of North Carolina lawmakers.  Nondiscrimination laws in North Carolina—even under HB2—have always been similar to 29 other states and 10,000 other municipalities.”
