Last week, Republican Rep. Barbara Dittrich reintroduced a pair of
regressive bills that unjustly target LGBTQ+ youth and would put elected
officials in charge of deciding what sports kids in Wisconsin can play.
[ [link removed] ]No politician should take away our freedom to be ourselves. Stand with
Wisconsin's LGBTQ+ youth.
Leading experts agree that access to extracurriculars like youth sports is
essential to children’s development – and no kid, regardless of age or
gender identity, should be barred from building on their talents and
learning skills like teamwork and leadership.
Instead of focusing on the things that we know promote healthy experiences
in youth sports, like fully-funded schools that can provide high quality
coaches, resources, and facilities, Rep. Dittrich and other right-wing
lawmakers are trying to use Wisconsin kids as political tools meant to
distract and divide.

Demand your legislator stand with everyday Wisconsinites in making our
state a place where all kids are free to be authentically themselves, play
the sports they love, and know that they belong.
Thanks for all you do.
A Better Wisconsin Together
P.S. Thanks to progressive leadership from Gov. Tony Evers, a similar bill
package failed in 2021. We hope that legislative Democrats and Gov. Evers
will once again stand in opposition to this egregious attack on
Wisconsin’s LGBTQ+ youth.
