North Carolina Passes Safe Schools Legislation

On Tuesday, in a 58-57 vote, the North Carolina House passed House Bill 548, the School Violence Prevention Act. This bill would require schools to adopt strong policies against bullying and harassment, including bullying based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression.

"This bill is a historic step in North Carolina and the South," said Ian Palmquist, Executive Director of Equality North Carolina. "Today a narrow majority stood up to make all kids—including LGBT kids—safer at school. We call on Governor Perdue to sign this important bill and make it law."
