"Inclusivity is a core belief at Target," the company said in a statement posted on its website Tuesday. "We believe that everyone -- every team member, every guest and every community -- deserves to be protected from discrimination and treated equally."
The company's statement came in response to laws like North Carolina's controversial House Bill 2, also known as the “bathroom bill.” The legislation requires people use public restrooms and locker rooms based on the gender on their birth certificates. Critics say the law is discriminatory. Supporters say it's common sense.
