The Town of Carrboro is happy to announce another successful review of the Town’s efforts in promoting LGBTQ inclusion.
Since 2014, the Town has been rated by the Human Rights Commission in their annual report of the Municipal Equality Index (MEI). The index measures the Town’s efforts in LGBTQ inclusion in municipal law, policies and services. The Town has received its highest ranking to date with a 76.
“We are pleased that we continue to improve our MEI score, despite being located in a state that does not have statewide protections for the LGBTQ+ community,” said Mayor Lydia Lavelle. “Carrboro has historically led the way at the local level in North Carolina in advancing LGBTQ+ equality. We will continue to work every way possible under the law for our LGBTQ+ residents to have the same rights and privileges as everyone else in the town.”
