It’s only been a few hours since Gov. Pence, while hiding from the Hoosiers who oppose this law, signed the “license to discriminate” bill into law, and the consequences continue to roll in.

We can’t miss this opportunity to highlight the real harm this law is already causing.

Last year, the NCAA did the right thing and opposed the discriminatory constitutional amendment, HJR-3. Now it’s time for the NCAA to do the right thing again and make it clear that they don’t support discrimination against anyone.
I know the last few days have been frustrating; we’ve been ignored by legislators and ignored by the governor. But, don’t get discouraged, that’s what our opponents want.
Instead, let’s keep fighting.
