On January 30, 2023, Young Women for America Ambassador Halli Gravley testified before the Virginia House of Delegates Higher Education Subcommittee Hearing in support of HB 1387, a fairness in women’s sports bill.
As a current female athlete on a college synchronized skating team in Virginia, Halli provided a much-needed perspective in this discussion. Furthermore, as an Ambassador for Young Women for America, Halli was able to “represent not only myself as an athlete but also young women across this state and this country who believe one of the most foundational truths that have existed from the beginning of time – God created two distinct sexes male and female. Allowing biological males to compete in women’s sports is an attack on science— on physical reality— and a betrayal of women’s rights.”
Halli is no stranger to the fight to defend the integrity of women’s sports as she testified a year ago in her home state of Kentucky in support of HB 23, the Save Women’s Sports Act, which passed and was signed into law.
HB 1387 passed the Higher Education Subcommittee, and we are looking forward to the day when the option to protect women’s sports in Virginia ends up on Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s desk.
