California joins the number of US states opposing the scandalous anti-LGBT HB2 law in North Carolina by means of travel boycott. Jerry Brown signed a bill that prohibits state agencies from compelling their employees to travel to states with laws that allow discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. It may allow employees to refuse to travel to as many as 20 states that have ‘religious freedom’ laws to allow LGBT discrimination.

The author of California’s boycott bill, Democratic Assemblyman Evan Low, told the Bee: “Our zero-tolerance policy says there is no room for discrimination of any kind in California, and (this bill) ensures that discrimination will not be tolerated beyond our borders.” It is the fifth state to take action to boycott North Carolina.
