SECoPA Board Releases Position on North Carolina HB2

Dear ASPA Members in District III:

I wanted you to be aware that the Board of the Southeastern Conference on Public Administration (SECoPA) has sent the attached letters to North Carolina Governor and General Assembly calling for a repeal of HB2 (Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act).

SECoPA Letter to NC General Assembly

SECoPA Letter to Governor McCrory

We are planning to convene our annual conference in Raleigh on October 13-16, and hope you will join us as we are making plans with ASPA and the LGBT Alliance Advocacy Section to use this opportunity to educate and raise awareness about any legislation that violates the ASPA code of ethics and fundamental principles of social equity, inclusiveness and nondiscrimination.

Sincerely,

 

Tom Barth

SECoPA Board President
