We just won two of the biggest victories this session! The Fairness in Girls’ Sports bill, HB1298, passed both the ND House and Senate in the past couple days! This represents a MASSIVE victory for girls throughout our state. Both chambers effectively said that we need a level playing field in girls’ high school sports, and that means biological girls should only have to compete against other biological girls.
We want to thank our legislators for taking this brave stand that is unpopular with the social agenda of the Biden Administration and its adherents. In North Dakota we pride ourselves on our common sense, and it came through loud and clear today with this vote.
So this is it then, right?
Not quite yet, but we are really close. Now it goes to Governor Burgum for his signature. Governor Burgum needs to know how strongly you feel about protecting our girls.
Here’s what we need you to help with.
- Please write a few sentences in a Facebook post about why keeping girls’ sports for girls is important to you. Make it personal, by perhaps talking about your own participation in girls’ sports or that of your daughters or granddaughters. Help convince Governor Burgum that North Dakota girls should be recognized for their hard work and determination.
- If possible, add a picture of your athlete with her sports medal, participating in a sport, etc. Nothing fancy – you can just grab a picture from your Facebook album.
- Please tag our Family Policy Alliance of North Dakota Facebook page (@FPAofNorthDakota) in your post, as well as Governor Burgum’s page (@GovernorDougBurgum).
- Forward this email to everyone who shares your values on this important issue. We need to have overwhelming participation on this.
PLEASE DO NOT WAIT TO DO THIS! WE DO NOT KNOW WHEN THIS BILL WILL REACH GOVERNOR BURGUM FOR HIS SIGNATURE!
Another way you can also help encourage Governor Burgum to sign HB1298 into law is by calling or emailing him. You can reach his office at: (701) 328-2200 or you can email him directly using the following link: https://www.governor.nd.gov/contact
Thanks again for your help. Together, we can help keep North Dakota a place where common sense rules and girls can compete to their full potential!
For North Dakota Girls,
President and Executive Director
