Texas Take Action: Protect Girls Sports!
We made a slight mistake yesterday regarding the timing of a bill that we asked you to take action on. There are two critical Texas bills that both deal with the transgender agenda. The bill to protect minors from transgender drugs and surgeries (S.B. 14) should be heard soon. But the priority bill – being heard on Monday in the Texas Senate State Affairs Committee – is the bill to protect women’s sports (S.B. 15).
For those of you who have taken action on S.B. 14 already, thank you! You are ahead of the curve—that bill will be heard soon, and we will update you as needed.
But Senate Bill 15 is equally important, and we urgently need your help to ensure it passes out of committee on Monday! That’s when the Texas Senate State Affairs Committee will consider S.B. 15, a bill to protect women’s collegiate sports in Texas. The bill protects female college athletes from having to compete against biologically male athletes.
In recent months, 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 both the Ivy League and NCAA National Championships. 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 Texas.
Along with our friends at Texas Values, who have been critical to the effort to get this bill passed, we need your help making sure it becomes law. The Senate State Affairs Committee will consider S.B. 15 on Monday, and we need you to send a message to your Senator today urging them to vote “Yes” on S.B. 15 and ensure female college athletes in Texas will not have to compete against men.
Let’s ensure the playing field is level for women’s sports! Discrimination against women in the name of social expediency has no place in Texas. Send a message to your senator today requesting that they vote “Yes” on S.B. 15 – it only takes a moment using the form below.
Now is the time to speak up to protect women’s sports in Texas!
