Fairness: Keep Girls’ Sports for Girls!

January 23

Fellow North Dakotans,

The House Human Services Committee is currently considering a bill that would prevent transgender boys from competing in girls’ sports here in North Dakota. We need your help in letting them know you’d like them to pass this common-sense legislation.

House Bill 1298 limits participation in girls’ sports to biological girls, making clear that women’s sports are for women only. It requires boys and girls to play on teams consistent with the biological sex initially indicated on their birth certificate. It is a fair, consistent, and documentable way of handling the issue.

Let’s keep the playing field level for girls’ sports. Let’s not set back the clock 50 years and discriminate against girls in the name of social expediency. Let’s keep North Dakota a state where common sense rules. As North Dakotans, we need to say to DC, “We will not yield to your social agenda, because it directly conflicts with our personal values!” In the spirit of all we hold dear as North Dakotans, you need to make sure the House Human Services Committee renders a “DO PASS” out of committee on HB 1298.

There are two ways to do this. First, you can send a message to all the members of the House Human Services Committee, urging them to support North Dakota girls. Second, you can testify via written document or online during the hearing by signing up here.

Now is the time to speak up to support girls here in North Dakota!
