North Carolina: Charlotte Loses Another Convention Over Hate Law

The economic backlash from North Carolina's anti-LGBT hate law, HB2, continues as the Charlotte Observer reports that the city has lost yet anther convention.

According to the city's tourism office, the cancellation by the National Organization for Victim Assistance, constitutes one of at least 20 conventions cancelled due to the hate law.

The event by NOVA would have included 1,200 attendees, 1,516 hotel rooms plus all the ancillary economic impact to the businesses in the area of the Sheraton Charlotte Hotel-Le Meridien, which had planned to host the event.

Earlier in the week, the Association for Library Service to Children announced plans to cancel their September event.

Happy Hate Law, North Carolina! It's continuing, kids.
