In April 2019, NCCADV released a report on the health and violence-related impacts of North Carolina's HB2 (the "bathroom bill") and the bill that repealed and replaced it, HB142.
While there have been well-documented statewide economic ramifications of HB2, there had been little focus on how HB2 and HB142 have impacted the health and well-being of LGBTQ+ individuals and communities, particularly T/GNC communities, in North Carolina. This health impact assessment report explores how HB2 and HB142 impact health and violence outcomes in these communities. Click below to read:
