Sample Script for Writing (add personal note & sign your name):
Dear Governor Burgum,
I’m writing to ask you to veto HB 1298, which will harm transgender women and girls in North Dakota who want to play sports.
HB 1298 singles out young trans people for no reason - this is a violation of federal law. HB 1298 will invite costly lawsuits that the state will lose, and put the state at risk of losing major sporting events, business, and tourism.
[ADD ANY PERSONAL DETAILS OR YOUR CONNECTION TO THIS BILL]
Please use your power to stop this discriminatory bill from becoming law and veto HB 1298.
