Penny Nance Responds to NCAA Statement on Transgender Participation

Washington, D.C. –  Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America, responds to the NCAA Board of Governors Statement on Transgender Participation issued April 12, 2021:

“For over a decade, the NCAA has been driven by politics, not science or safety, in promoting transathletes in women’s sports. Once again, the NCAA Board of Governors has shown their disdain for female student-athletes treating them as second class and denying their rights for equality under Title IX. Throwing women and our female status under the bus (again) and threatening states who are doing the right thing only shows the incompetence and cowardice of the NCAA. The Board of Governors clearly has no regard for real fairness for female student-athletes, only woke politics. Further, this statement shows that the activism of the left leaves no middle ground. Young women deserve better than this.”

Voice Your Support for Fair Competition and Equality in Women’s Sports

You can make a difference in North Dakota by praying and acting on important bills being considered during the 2021 North Dakota legislative session. HB1298, relating to participation in athletic events exclusively for males or females, is one such bill. As the Director of the state’s largest public policy woman’s organization, the testimony I will be giving next week before the House Human Services Committee addresses the issue’s impact on girls’ and women’s sports. Fair competition and equality in women’s sports are being threatened, and this legislation will combat that.

Read Concerned Women for America’s Protecting Women’s Sports CWA Fact Sheet for important information on this issue.

This Monday, January 25, I will testify in favor of the bill and urge the committee members to give HB1298 a due-pass recommendation. I covet your prayers. The Human Services Committee will vote on the bill at a later date.

Please Take Action:

#1 – Email or call the members of the House Human Services Committee listed below my signature line and ask them to vote a “Do Pass” on HB1298. If you are a member of Concerned Women for America of North Dakota, please let them know. Do not hesitate to leave a message on their voicemail.

Suggested message:
Please vote “Do Pass” on HB 1298. Individual male born athletes should not be eligible to participate on an athletic team that is exclusively for females. Protect equal opportunity and a fair playing field for girls and women given under Title IX.

Your name and town

#2 – Forward this information to family and friends! Every email message and every phone call are counted!

Please Pray: Pray for our legislators on the House Human Services Committee by name, that God would give them the wisdom and understanding to accomplish His purposes.

“Who is wise and understanding among you?  Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.” – James 3:13
