BLOGWhy 2 Moms in North Carolina Are Standing Up to the Obama Administration

By Sarah Kramer Posted on: | May 24, 2016

Don’t mess with my kids.

That’s the message two North Carolina moms want the Obama Administration to hear. They are part of the nonprofit organization North Carolinians for Privacy, which – with the help of Alliance Defending Freedom – is suing the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the U.S. Department of Education (DOE). The lawsuit asks for the court to make clear that students don’t have to give up their right to bodily privacy in order to get an education.

“My children should not, being in public school, have to choose between their right to privacy and their protection, and their education,” says Donica Hudson, a mother of three who lives in Charlotte, NC.

“I have to stand up for my children,” says Tammy Covil, who has four children and lives in Wilmington, NC.

The DOJ sued the state of North Carolina earlier this month simply for passing HB2, a common sense law that states biological men should not be allowed in the women’s state-owned multi-user restrooms or locker rooms, and vice versa.  HB2 allows private business, like Target, to set their own facility policies.

By suing North Carolina, the DOJ is threatening to take away federal funding to public schools if the state does not agree to open up bathrooms and locker rooms to members of the opposite sex.

These women spoke with the Daily Signal to explain why they were prompted to act.


The privacy and safety of public school students in North Carolina – from kindergarteners to medical students – is in jeopardy. And if the DOJ can bully North Carolina into accepting these policies, it won’t stop there.

Help protect the privacy and safety of women and children.

We’ve seen these types of policies pop up across the United States. Help protect the privacy and safety of women and children by signing the statement of support at: SafeBathrooms.org.
