American joins amicus brief related to N.C. House Bill 2
American has signed onto an amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) brief in support of the U.S. Department of Justice’s motion seeking to block the enforcement of North Carolina’s House Bill 2. HB2 mandates that, in all state and local government owned buildings, including public schools, airports, and agencies in North Carolina, individuals must use the restroom corresponding with the gender on their birth certificate rather than their gender identity. Laws that allow this type of discrimination go against American’s core beliefs of equality and inclusion – values that are crucial for the success of our company. So we have joined with more than 60 other leading corporations to express why HB2 is bad for business and will negatively impact our ability to recruit and retain employees in the state of North Carolina.
