Honolulu bans non-essential publicly-funded travel to North Carolina and Mississippi due to LGBT discrimination bills

News Release from City and County of Honolulu April 7, 2016

Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell today issued a moratorium on non-essential publicly-funded travel by city employees to the states of North Carolina and Mississippi. Similar actions have been taken by municipalities across the country after lawmakers in North Carolina and Mississippi recently enacted laws that endorse discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.

“This moratorium sends a clear message to states where discrimination against people in the LGBT community, as well as any discrimination based on race, religion, color, national origin, age, biological sex, or handicap, is tolerated,” said Mayor Caldwell. “Hopefully, common sense and our core American values of equality and tolerance will prevail in these states, allowing us to lift this moratorium.”

Also today, Mayor Caldwell joined the newly formed coalition group Mayors Against Discrimination spearheaded by San Francisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee. Currently, the coalition also includes the mayors of Seattle, New York City, Philadelphia, Portland, Oakland, Sante (sic) Fe, Washington, D.C., and Tampa, with a quickly growing list of Mayors who are standing against bigotry and hatred.
