Urgent: Tell your City Officials to Oppose Anti-Religious Liberty SOGI Ordinances

Following the expiration of HB142 and the state legislature’s inability to make its provision permanent, local governments in Orange County are conspiring together to pass local sexual orientation and gender identity ordinances that undermine religious liberty. Officials in cities such as Carrboro, Chapel Hill, and Hillsborough and the entire Orange County government have decided to enact such changes, despite the fact that these types of local ordinances violate the State Constitution as well as First Amendment protections in the Federal Constitution for freedom of religion, speech, association and conscience.

Just as Charlotte did back in 2015, municipal leaders are hurriedly advancing an unnecessary and unconstitutional law where the town council can punish people and businesses that don't hold to the "government view" of sexuality. The intent is to deprive citizens of their First Amendment rights to free speech and free exercise of their religious beliefs. The proposed broad-brush ordinance being considered is an attempt to deny every self-employed entrepreneur, small business, church and nonprofit organization doing business with and within the municipality the right to free speech and religious exercise, which are fundamental to the American system.

This is where you come in! Cities like Hillsborough, Carrboro, and Chapel Hill are trying to sneak this past you and prevent public outcry.
