A few seats still remain for tomorrow’s special Crucial Conversation with Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts on the state’s decision to overturn her city’s nondiscrimination ordinance.

We’re also happy to announce that tomorrow’s event will feature introductory remarks by N.C. Justice Center Executive Director Rick Glazier as well as brief presentations by three additional experts on the controversy:

Chris Brook — Brook is Legal Director of the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina, where he oversees the organization’s legal program and its work on a wide range of constitutional law issues, including LGBT rights, racial justice, and religious liberty.

Joaquín Carcaño — Carcaño is a UNC-Chapel Hill employee and plaintiff in the lawsuit filed filed early this morning by the ACLU, Lambda Legal and Equality NC.

Tim Gaudette — Gaudette is Outreach Manager at nationally-based Small Business Majority — a business-run group that helps debunk right-wing mythology and stereotypes regarding the needs and opinions of American small businesses.

Hope to see you there.
