We are back this week for our biweekly Exclusive Capitol Insiders Call, April 7th, at 4:30 pm, where we will be joined by special guests from the ACLU to discuss ways to oppose HB 972, which would ban transgender girls and women from competing in school sports or athletics meant for “females, women, and girls”. All young people, transgender and cisgender, benefit from being involved in school activities, including sports. Athletics give trans youth a sense of belonging and inclusion. Research also consistently shows that participation in activities benefits students emotionally and academically.
The importance of this lies in protecting our children as they suffer from bigoted attacks by adults who perpetuate inaccurate and harmful beliefs about trans people. This bill is part of a larger, national wave of outrage politics meant to fuel a propaganda machine, one that has been allowed to run rampant for far too long. It’s time for Pennsylvanians to stand up and say we won’t let legislators attack our youth any longer!
We will be joined by Naiymah Sanchez, Trans Rights Organizer, and Marianne Stein, Legislative Associate, from the ACLU of Pennsylvania!
