NCDP Celebrates Pride Month

NCDP Chair Bobbie Richardson, LGBTQ+ Democrats of NC Auxiliary President Ginger Walker, and NCDP Transgender Political Caucus President Angela Bridgman released a joint statement to commemorate  Pride month. 

“This Pride month, North Carolina Democrats are celebrating the enormous progress being made as President Biden takes historic action to advance protections for the LGBTQ+ community, including extending Title IX protections to transgender students and reversing the damaging Trump-era policies to again provide protections against discrimination in health care. 

“North Carolina Democrats are proud to carry on what began in the streets of New York City over 50 years ago, marching against hate and fighting for equality for all. We will continue to reject hateful legislation that threatens to erode progress and stand with and celebrate our LGBTQ+ community because no one should be discriminated against for who they are or who they love.”
