Policy Leaders to Noem: Support the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act
Dozens of state and national policy leaders sign open letter to South Dakota governor Kristi Noem.
On Monday March 29, 2021, Hawaii Family Forum joined other national leaders as they released an open letter to South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem. The letter, signed by 47 national and state policy leaders, urges Governor Noem to support a bill like HB 1217, the “Fairness in Women’s Sports” Act, as originally passed by the state legislature. The bill is designed to protect female athletic opportunities by ensuring that only biological females are eligible to compete in girls’ and women’s school sports.
The letter was signed by 11 leading national organizations: Alliance Defending Freedom, American College of Pediatricians, American Principles Project, Christian Medical & Dental Associations, Concerned Women for America, Eagle Forum, Family Policy Alliance, Family Research Council, Heritage Action for America, Save Women’s Sports, and Women’s Liberation Front. It also gained support from key leaders in 35 states, including South Dakota.
The coalition hopes that Noem will ultimately choose to support a bill like HB 1217 as originally passed by the legislature.
