South Carolina S1087


BACKGROUND: South Carolina S1087 would only permit a student to participate on a team competing in an interscholastic activity that is under the jurisdiction of the South Carolina High School League according to the sex stated on the student’s original birth certificate. The bill would require the student to produce their original birth certificate at the request of the South Carolina High School League.

SAMPLE TEXT (you can copy/paste or use as a guide)




I am writing in strong opposition to S1087, which will discriminate against transgender youth.


Policies at the high school level should prioritize access and participation for all youth, including transgender youth. Across the country, state high school athletic associations have been allowing transgender student-athletes to participate with their peers in the gender with which they identify. This is something the South Carolina High School League should set policy on - not a matter for state government.


All young people should be able to get the benefits of participating in sport while being their authentic selves. I ask you to vote against S1087.
