TEXAS: Sign the Petition and Join Texas Values in San Antonio Tomorrow to #SaveWomensSports
Dear Texas Friends,
Our allies at Texas values are planning to deliver a petition to protect women’s’ sports directly to the NCAA at their convention tomorrow in San Antonio.
Everything you need to know to sign onto the petition and to join them as they deliver the petition is below.
Please take a moment to sign the petition even if you cannot make it to San Antonio!
The Family Policy Alliance Team
On Thursday (1/12), the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) will be hosting their annual convention at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas to discuss policies surrounding collegiate sports. At the convention, NCAA officials will be discussing their policies surrounding men competing in women’s sports. Additionally, the NCAA will be awarding the Woman of the Year award, the award that male swimmer Lia Thomas was nominated for earlier this year, but whose name has been withdrawn. Due to the increase of biological men competing in female sports at the collegiate level, many women, grassroots activists, and female athletes will be holding a rally on January 12, at 9 a.m. – 11a.m. to urge the NCAA to protect female sports.
Members of the Texas Values team will be joining former collegiate swimmer Riley Gaines, Independent Council on Women’s Sports (ICONS), Independent Women’s Forum (IWF) and Concerned Women for America (CWA) at the rally in support. We need as many Texas female college athletes as possible to attend! If you know any female Texas college athletes or female athletes in middle school or high school, please invite them to come and have them email email@example.com. We also need our Texas Values supporters to be present for the rally as well. After the rally, we will begin a processional to inside the convention where female athletes will hand deliver a petition to the NCAA officials. Click the button below to sign the petition. More details on the rally can be found here.
