Update April 15, 2021: HB 1298 passed the Senate 27 to 20 and now goes to the Governor.

Yes on HB 1298 to Protect Fairness, Safety, and Dignity in Youth Sports

House Bill 1298
ensures fairness, safety, and dignity in youth sports by requiring that biological girls compete as girls and biological boys compete as boys.

Activist groups have spread a great deal of misinformation about this bill. It:

  • DOES NOT prohibit transgender students from participating in sports.

  • DOES NOT interfere with college-level athletics.

  • DOES NOT stop girls from playing on boys' teams, such as football.

  • DOES NOT mean that private athletic associations will boycott North Dakota (at least 11 states have similar policies and they have not been boycotted.)

Ask your Senator to protect
fairness and safety in children's sports. It's common sense.

Who: State Senate

Where: Senate Message Center or contact them directly by phone or email.

Sample Message: Please accept the conference committee's report and vote Yes on HB 1298. It's a common sense approach to protect fairness and safety in children's sports.
