🚨 We need you to call your Representatives! ⁣

🚨This Wednesday, February 19, at 8:00 am, the Missouri House General Laws Committee will hear HJR 82 (Ross R-142). This bill would require student athletes to participate in sports according to their sex assigned at birth. (CALL form:⁣

Schools across the country know that transgender students, like any student, thrive when they are treated with dignity and respect. Transgender athletes participate in sports for the same reason as everyone else - to learn good sportsmanship, get and stay healthy, be of a team, and build a sense of belonging with their peers. ⁣

Our laws should protect transgender youth, not encourage discrimination against them.⁣
