Indiana Take Action: Protect Girls’ Sports!

May 20, 2022

Dear Friends,

Along with our allies at Indiana Family Institute, we have a request for your urgent action.

The vote to override Gov. Holcomb’s veto of HB 1041, a bill to protect girls’ sports in Indiana, is scheduled for Tuesday, May 24. The bill protects K-12 female athletes from having to compete against biological male athletes.

The legislation that Gov. Holcomb vetoed does not prevent any children from participating in sports. Rather, it ensures that only girls compete on girls-only teams, and only boys compete on boys-only teams. Co-ed teams still exist!

Why is this bill so important?

  • Males and females are biologically and physiologically different. Males hold definitive physical advantages over females, giving the average male a competitive edge (and usually, much more than just an “edge”).
  • When we allow males to compete in women’s sports, we take away opportunities for scholarships, victories, and even the simple idea of being on a team from female athletes.
  • In contact sports, allowing males to compete in female-only sports is dangerous. Are we really going to sacrifice women’s safety in the name of woke identity politics?

Fill out the form below to send a message to your Indiana State Representative and Senator and urge them to override the governor’s veto and SAVE GIRLS’ SPORTS.

It’s not enough to say we want fairness in sports – we have to act. Every Indiana State Representative and Senator must know that their constituents are committed to saving girls’ sports in Indiana.

Indiana legislators only have a few weeks to get this done. It only takes a minute to encourage them to protect girls’ sports using the form below.

Thank you for taking action to save girls’ sports in Indiana!
