And So It Begins
Our policy director, Mike McClellan, has been telling us that the month of May was going to see some heavy legislative action. Well, on May 6th, things will definitely be heating up with public hearings on several bills we have been watching.
How do you feel about biological males being allowed into women’s shelters? Do you think boys should be allowed to compete against girls in athletic events when they have a clear physical advantage? It’s one thing to complain about these issues, but do you feel strongly enough about them to offer testimony in support of these bills?
Courageous legislators like Sen. Lisa Keim, Rep. Mary Anne Kinney, and Rep. Beth O’Connor are standing up for women’s safety, privacy, and athletic opportunities. What are we willing to do to support them? Will you provide testimony via Zoom? Can you take the time to submit written testimony?
On May 6th, the members of the Judiciary Committee need to know that everyday Mainers support these bills. They need to hear that women who have experienced domestic violence at the hands of men do not want to sleep and shower with men in the very shelters in which they are seeking safety. Parents of daughters, coaches of women, female athletes, need to tell the Judiciary Committee members to defend and protect the progress that women have made after years of neglect in inequality in sports.
If we you are interested in testifying, contact Mike McLellan if you would like information on how to prepare and deliver testimony. Mike wants to hear from you regarding Sen. Keim’s bill to protect women’s shelters [LD1238], Rep. O’Connor’s bill to ban men from women’s sports [LD 926], and Rep. Kinney’s bill to ban men from competing in school sports events that are federally funded . You can reach Mike by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (329-6148).
