Non-Discrimination Ordinance

In December 2020, a key section of House Bill 142 expired and North Carolina municipalities regained some authority to enact local inclusive non-discrimination ordinances to better protect their residents.

At the May 11, 2021 meeting, the Davidson Board of Commissioners adopted Resolution 2021-08, Dignity and Equality in the Town of Davidson, a firm stance in support of every member of the Davidson community and clearly advocating to treat all people with respect. The resolution is available here.  

In early October 2021, Mecklenburg County adopted a Non-Discrimination Ordinance which provided a new possible framework for resolving violations of a potential ordinance in the Town of Davidson as well.
