Anyone who's ever stepped onto a hockey rink or a basketball court can tell you about the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat.
For most athletes, however, it's not just about winning or losing. It's about playing the game.
But that could change in North Dakota if House Bill 1298 passes.
On Tuesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on House Bill 1298, legislation that would codify discrimination against transgender youth in North Dakota and ban transgender athletes under the age of 18 from competing on sports teams that match their gender identity.
Instead of leveling the playing field, this legislation would place hurdles in front of students just because they're transgender.
This kind of discrimination needs to stop. And we need your help.
