Joe Walsh to Donate Proceeds from North Carolina Show to ACLU
Joe Walsh announced he will give a portion of the proceeds from his upcoming show in North Carolina to the ACLU to support its lawsuit fighting the anti-LGBT law HB 2, which removes protections for LGBT people and prohibits transgender people from using bathrooms that correspond to their gender identity.
The remainder of the net profits from his June 30 show in Charlotte and August 9 show in Raleigh will also go to Equality NC. Both ACLU and Equality NC will be on site at the show with information and collecting donations.
In March, Lambda Legal, the ACLU, and the ACLU of North Carolina filed the lawsuit on behalf of LGBT clients in North Carolina who have been targeted by this discriminatory law.
