Solidarity Statement

Valuing Each Individual’s Uniqueness

The ‘North Carolina Encounters: The Wonder of Learning’ host committee is deeply committed to viewing every human as strong, competent and capable. We celebrate the uniqueness of each individual and are steadfast in our resolve to welcome a diverse and inclusive community. To this end we rebuke NC House Bill 2. There are many ways to respond to this discriminative law and we are grateful to all those who raise their voices in protest. We pledge to provide venues that align with our commitment to the LGBTQ+ community, as well as to use the Wonder of Learning as an opportunity for dialogue and advocacy of social justice.
