Two devastating regulations founded in religious dogma will have sweeping effects on the trans community in America should they pass! HR 724 and HR 5 are being considered by federal representatives. Please reach out and urge your reps to oppose these two horrible bills!
HR 734 would ban trans girls throughout the country from being able to participate in sports that align with their gender identity. This ban does not take into account the positive outcomes that student sports can have on children, including both mental and physical benefits. This is just one of many religiously motivated trans sports bans, with the sole intention of fearmongering and demonizing a marginalized group. These bills masquerade as “protecting children,” but the true intention is to isolate trans youth.
Additionally, HR 5 would gut student access to LGBTQ+ materials. The federal government would require local school boards to expose themselves to heavy censorship and book banning on topics that overzealous parents deem to be inappropriate to students. This is another poorly masked attack on trans youth, as these motions have been primarily targeting materials that offer support and information. These two bills are a joint effort aimed at striping away rights from the trans community, and they must be stopped.
It is vital to act quickly to prevent these bills from passing! We’ve included suggested language through the “Take Action” button, which you may customize as you see fit. For best results, please be succinct and polite.
