Let All New Hampshire Students Play School Sports

Victory

Overview

New Hampshire should be a place where all young people, including transgender youth, can live free and thrive.

UPDATE 3/16/2022: The House voted against the legislation, which would have invited discrimination and exclusion against transgender students in schools. Learn more.

 

HB 1180 aims to reserve the right for public school sports programs to disregard a student’s gender identity and to assign them to teams according to their sex assigned at birth. The bill contradicts state and federal nondiscrimination protections and undermines the principle that we are all equal under the law. The effort comes in the wake of failed efforts in 2020 and 2021 to deny transgender girls equal education opportunities by excluding them from school sports programs.
