We have a request for your urgent help.
The Senate Committee on Education is hearing SB 140, a bill to protect girls sports in Alaska. The bill protects female athletes from having to compete against biologically male athletes in grades K-12. This is a huge step in the right direction!
In recent weeks, we have seen the stories about an Ivy League man dominating women’s swimming events. He has illegitimately broken women’s records and taken the place of deserving women on the winners’ platform, including at the Ivy League Championship. Parents are now concerned for their daughters’ sports scholarships and educational opportunities. It is a travesty and one which we need to prevent from happening in Alaska.
The full Alaska Senate may soon consider SB 140, and we need you to send a message to your representative today urging them to vote “Yes” on SB 140 and ensure college girls in Alaska will not have to compete against men.
Let’s ensure the playing field is level for ALL girls’ sports. Discrimination against girls in the name of social expediency has no place in Alaska. Send a message to your representative today requesting that they vote “Yes” on SB 140 – it only takes a moment in our Action Center.
Now is the time to speak up to protect girls’ sports in Alaska!
