NCDP: Patsy Keever—Chair of NCDP and Veleria Levy—2nd Vice Chair Support Charlotte’s Nondiscrimination Ordinance

Over the past  week the two top2 women of the North Carolina Democratic Party have come out in open support of Charlotte’s nondiscrimination ordinance.

In a telephone conversation between Patsy Keever, the Chair of 1the NCDP and Janice Covington Allison—who ran for the NCDP’s top post just a few short weeks ago—Keever acknowledged Allison’s roll as Chair of Diversity and Outreach for the Party.

According to Janice, the conversation was centered around the nondiscrimination ordinance that the Charlotte city council will vote on Monday night—March 2nd.

Janice told Keever she will be speaking at the meeting and Keever encouraged Allison to use her title at that meeting and Keever acknowledged her support for the ordinance. Keever has also made telephone contact with the Charlotte city council in support of the ordinance.

On Sunday night, the 2nd Vice Chair of the NCDP, Veleria Levy wrote a Facebook post in support of the ordinance.

Both of these NCDP Officers are doing the right thing, at the right time and for the right reasons.  And, I believe both understand this is not simply a “bathroom” ordinance issue

Kudos to both of these NC Democratic leaders for coming forward and taking a stand for what is right.
