Academic Preservation Trust Takes Stand on North Carolina’s Anti-LGBT Law

Citing opposition to North Carolina’s discriminatory law barring “local governments from passing antibias laws that include sexual orientation or gender identity,” thereby adversely affecting the “cultural heritage generated by the targeted community,” Chip German, Director of the Academic Preservation Trust (APTrust), announced that the group has decided to move an April 18–19 meeting from North Carolina to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD. In addition to the switch, the APTrust is offering to financially assist attendees who must pay change fees on flights.

In his announcement, German stated, “We look forward to the time when we do not have to limit our consideration of venues for our activities in order to stay consistent with our commonly held values.”
