We have an urgent request for your help.
The Utah House Health and Human Services Committee has voted to advance a bill that would allow biological boys and men to compete in sports with biological girls and women. The bill specifically says that a biological male can compete in female athletics if he has undergone one year of “hormone treatment,” a term the bill does not even define. This puts women’s and girls’ sports in Utah in great danger.
We need your help to prevent that.
In recent weeks, we have seen the stories about an Ivy League man dominating women’s swimming events. He has broken women’s records and taken the place of deserving women on the winners’ platform – all because he retains advantages as a biological male, even after receiving hormone treatment. Stories like this one have shown up at all levels of women’s sports. Many parents across the country are now rightly concerned for their daughters’ sports scholarships and educational opportunities.
That is the future in Utah if the House votes “Yes” on H.B. 11, and we need you to send a message to your representative urging that they reject H.B. 11 to ensure that female athletes in Utah will not have to compete against biological males.
You can help ensure the playing field is level for girls’ sports by sending a message to your representative today – it only takes a moment in our Action Center.
Now is the time to speak up to protect girls’ sports in Utah!
