UPDATE: Senate File 133 passed in both chambers. The bill now moves to Gov. Gordon for his signature.
This kind of discrimination needs to stop.
We need to send a message loud and clear that discriminatory legislation like Senate File 133 has no place in the Equality State. Contact Governor Gordon today and urge him to veto Senate File 133.
Senate File 133 would ban transgender athletes from competing on the sports teams that match their gender identity.
The ACLU of Wyoming opposes Senate File 133. This bill violates both the United States Constitution and Title IX of the Civil Rights Act, which protects all students – including those who are transgender – from discrimination based on sex.
Senate File 133 is not about leveling the playing field for student athletes. It’s about erasing and excluding trans people from participation in all aspects of public life. It’s about creating solutions to problems that don’t exist and, in the process, harming some of the most vulnerable people in Wyoming.
