WFAE's Charlotte Talks Presents: A Public Conversation On How HB2 Changed North Carolina


The impact of HB2 is now beginning to be felt. Last week, the NBA announced they were pulling their All-Star weekend from Charlotte. City businesses are now set to lose an estimated $100 million. But there has also been an impact on the city and the state’s image, and on LGBTQ individuals who have lost protections against discrimination. We discuss this and more during a WFAE Public Conversation. 

After the broadcast portion of the show, the program continued with questions and comments from the audience.

This public forum was recorded in front of a live audience at McGlohon Theater on Tuesday, July 26.
