TAKE ACTION: Ask Gov. Burgum to Veto Anti-Trans Bill
Trans people belong everywhere in North Dakota – including sports.
Unfortunately, the North Dakota legislature doesn't think so and has passed House Bill 1298, legislation that would prohibit transgender student-athletes from playing on teams that match their gender identity.
House Bill 1298 isn't about protecting fairness in sports. It's a bill that violates the United States Constitution and Title IX of the Civil Rights Act, which protects all students – including those who are transgender – from discrimination based on sex. It's a bill that erases and excludes trans people from participation in all aspects of public life. And it's a bill that creates a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, harming some of the most vulnerable people in our state.
This kind of discrimination needs to stop.
We need to send a message loud and clear that North Dakotans don't want House Bill 1298 signed into law. Contact Governor Burgum today and urge him to veto House Bill 1298.
