Critical Update and Alert on Girls’ Sports – Please Take Action!
If there were any doubt about the timeliness of Save Girls’ Sports Week, the Left has erased that with their latest attack – and your help is urgently needed to stop it!
As you may recall, last month President Trump’s Department of Education released a decision that a Connecticut policy allowing biological males to play in female sports violated federal law. Which law did it violate? Title IX, the federal law that made women’s sports possible at the level we have them today, and whose anniversary we’ve honored this week with Save Girls’ Sports Week. The Department’s decision was a significant step in support of female athletes.
But now Trump’s Administration, and especially the Department of Education, is under intense pressure to walk back its stand for female athletes. Why? Because, in the view of Left-wing lobbyists, the Supreme Court’s Bostock decision from last week that redefined “sex” to include “gender identity” should expand to permit boys’ (who identify as girls) to compete in girls’ sports. In fact, though, the Court (thankfully) refused to deal with other issues like girls’ sports in the Bostock decision. If Bostock were applied to girls’ sports, it would indeed have disastrous effects on women’s opportunities. The Court did not discuss girls’ sports, and we cannot let left-wing activists act as though it did.
Here’s our urgent request for you today: will you send a message to President Trump and U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, thanking them for their support for female athletes and urging them to STAND STRONG?
So far, the Trump Administration hasn’t buckled, but the pressure is enormous. Your voice – combined with thousands of others – will help bolster any doubters in the Administration.
Finally, thank you for your participation in Save Girls’ Sports Week. Because of you, the #SaveGirlsSports message has spread, we’ve gathered thousands of signatures on our petition to state lawmakers, and geared up for efforts to Save Girls’ Sports in Idaho (the only state with a proactive law to protect girls’ sports) and other states. And it’s not too late to add your voice via social media if you haven’t done so yet!
But most of all today, will you take one minute to make your voice heard to President Trump and Secretary DeVos?
