Jennifer Pizer Lambda Legal today (Wednesday, April 19) blasted efforts in Congress to ban trans girls and women from participating school sports while applauding the re-introduction of the Do No Harm Act.

The U.S. House of Representatives today considered HR 734, which Lambda Legal called “the Orwellian-titled” Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act.

Sasha Buchert, Lambda Legal senior attorney and director of the organization’s Nonbinary and Transgender Rights Project, released a written statement condemning the measure. “HR 734 is an ignorant and despicable attempt to systematically deny transgender, nonbinary and intersex youth the opportunity to participate in school sports,” Buchert said. “The physical and psychological benefits of being able to play are well documented.

Participation in athletics provides youth with opportunities to develop life-long healthy habits, leadership skills, discipline, and self-confidence.
