Save Sports in Idaho

Dear [Decision Maker],

It has come to my attention that on June 10, the ACLU and its allies sent you letters asking that you ban Idaho from hosting any NCAA events, including the 2021 Men's Basketball Championship games, on account of the Fairness in Women's Sports Act. I ask that you reject this call.

Bowing to the ACLU's demands would send a strong message against equal opportunity for women across the nation. As you know, Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in educational programs including athletics. It contributed strongly to allowing women's sports to become the competitive world it is today. In fact, according to the Women's Sports Foundation (founded by Billie Jean King, a signer to one of the June 10 communications), "Before Title IX, one in 27 girls played sports. Today that number is two in five."

In a recent administrative decision, the U.S. Department of Education ruled that a Connecticut policy allowing biological males to play in female sports (what the ACLU is advocating for) is a violation of Title IX and could result in the loss of federal funding. Following the ACLU's recommended course of action, especially just days before the June 23 anniversary of Title IX, would send a clear message that the NCAA is not only against Idaho athletes, but against the female athletes of yesterday and today.

Please don't send that message. The NCAA must be better and it can be better than submitting to bullying and standing against women nationwide.

Sincerely,
