Yesterday, on the declared Gay and Lesbian and Trans Day at the Capitol, the State, Civic, Military, and Veterans Affairs Committee defeated HB23-1098, the Women’s Rights in Athletics bill. I was present at the hearing representing your voice, and my written testimony in support of the bill was submitted for the record.

The defeat of HB23-1098 was a grave injustice to Colorado’s female athletes. Policies allowing male athletes who identify as women to compete in women’s and girls’ sports are sidelining female athletes. I encourage you to read Concerned Women for America (CWA) ‘s newest article, Protecting Female Athletes Remains a Top Priority as the NCAA and Biden Double Down Against Women. Progress is being made on this issue, and CWA of Colorado will continue to fight for our state’s female athletes.

Thank you for taking action and praying. Our work is not in vain.

Please pray with CWA of Colorado for a move of the Holy Spirit on the Colorado Capitol. Be reminded of Psalm 33:10-11, “The LORD foils the plans of the nations; He thwarts the purposes of the peoples. But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of His heart through all generations.”
Thank you!
