ALSC Board Votes to Cancel National Institute in Charlotte

“The cancellation is a response to the passage last month of North Carolina’s Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act (House Bill 2), which repealed all LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination ordinances across the state. The law contradicts the core values, purpose, and diversity work of ALSC and undermines civil rights and the fundamental principles upon which libraries are founded. While N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory did release an executive order last week addressing the controversial HB2, the action does not restore cities’ right to establish local nondiscrimination ordinances that apply to the private sector.” (via American Libraries Magazine)
