With a population of over 29 million people, Texas is home to a lot of people – and the policies made in Texas can have influence around the nation. So, what’s hot in Texas? Ensuring that female athletes have a level playing field in sports – that means that girls’ and women’s sports should be just for girls and women!

This year, Texas Values has made great strides in saving girls’ sports and protecting minors from gender transition in Texas. In our live video today, Mary Elizabeth Castle, Director of Government Relations at Texas Values, gives important updates on the persistent efforts of Texas Values.

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.

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of the Year award, the award that male swimmer Lia Thomas was nominated for earlier this year, but whose name has been withdrawn.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 mcastle@txvalues.org. 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.

The bill to #SaveGirlsSports in Texas will be heard in the special session on Monday, and your voice is needed!

Our friends at Texas Values have been leading the way admirably on this issue for months and we hope you can join in to help them on this important special legislative session issue.

State Sen. Charles Perry filed SB 2 to prohibit biological men from competing in biological women’s sports. SB 2 covers both high school and college athletics. Women should not be spectators in their own sports. Texas must act this special session to preserve equal opportunities for women in sports!

The Save Women’s Sports bill, SB 2, will be heard in the Senate Committee on Health and Human Services at 10:00 AM on Monday, July 12th, in the Senate Chamber at the Texas Capitol Building in Austin.

Here’s how you can help

  1. Please consider coming to testify at the Texas Capitol on Monday! Our colleagues at Texas Values will provide you all the support that you need, including talking points and step-by-step instructions.Please immediately contact jcovey@txvalues.org if you are interested in getting talking points or are able to attend the hearing to testify.
  2. Even if you can’t make it to the Texas Capitol on Monday, please submit a comment by email to the Health and Human Services Committee at Kimberly.robertson_sc@senate.texas.gov. Be sure to specify what bill you are supporting (SB 2).
  3. Also, please take a few moments to email your state legislators and ask them to support SB 2, the Save Women’s Sports bill.

Thank you for making your voice heard!
