Your actions have slowed down HB 217 but the fight is not over! TAKE ACTION
Mar 27, 2013 — Your quick response to stand in solidarity with North Carolina youth & families slowed down HB 217. Here is what YOU accomplished:
- In less than 2 days, over 400 of you signed the petition. This means that each of the 14 committee members received over 400 emails urging them to oppose section 7 of HB 217.
- You flooded their phone lines and inboxes! And through social media efforts you spread the word about the hearing. The morning of March 20th, the room was PACKED with people opposing HB 217!
The fight is not over!
At the March 20th hearing, your presence online and in the hearing led to many of the committee members to question the bill and a vote was not requested. The sponsors of the bill decided to take a step back and open the door for feedback.
