Coalition of 25 Organizations Send Letter to Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona Expressing Concerns with Forthcoming Rewrite of Title IX Regarding Transgender Participation in Student Sports

Press Releases

On April 19, 2023, a coalition of 25 organizations, representing 397,494 members, sent a letter to Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona to express deep concerns over the U.S. Department of Education’s proposed rule regarding transgender participation in student sports under Title IX. We oppose the Department’s efforts to coerce schools into allowing transgender athletes to participate on the team of their self-professed gender identity on the grounds that these changes will negatively impact the mental and physical well-being of biologically female student athletes, and also harm both parental rights and federalism – as well as the budgets of federal, state, and local education agencies across the country.

The full letter can be found here.
